Who to Call

Important Emergency Numbers In and Around Lamorinda

We are very fortunate to live in such a resourceful community – both online and offline - but it can be overwhelming trying to find the exact number to call when the need to make an urgent call arises. Here's a list of community resources that will help you find out who to call. In a life-threatening emergency, immediately call 9-1-1.

Police Services

Note that cell phone 9-1-1 calls made near freeways are routed to CHP, and the dispatcher does not receive the same details as a landline call (location, emergency jurisdictions). To reach local police on your cell, dial the dispatch number directly.
