Highland Park is part of a country-wide emergency telephone system referred to as 911. The Town’s enhanced 911 provides added safety features for its citizens such as telephone number identification, selective routing, address location, etc. For police, fire, or medical emergencies, please call 9-1-1.
Text to 9-1-1 is available in Highland Park and is the ability to send a text message to reach 911 emergency call takers from your mobile phone or device. Voice calls to 911 provide more information to 911 call centers, but there are instances where Text-to-911 is your safest option.
NCT 9-1-1 has created a helpful electronic flyer for parents and teachers wishing to instruct children on the proper use of 9-1-1. The electronic flyer is available to you on the Town's website.
