Use 911 only for emergencies not information

Do Not Call 911 for Road Condition updates or non-emergency information or services.

North East King County Regional Public Safety Communications Agency (NORCOM) the agency that manages the emergency call system for several Eastside communities is requesting citizens not call 911for updated road condition information.

911 should be used for emergencies only. Calling 911 for information delays emergency calls from being answered and can delay help. These delays for emergency calls can have devastating effects on those most in need.

The following have updated road closure and other storm related information available at the City of Mercer Island: http://www.mercergov.org or King County: http://www.kingcounty.gov.

Thank you for keeping 911 available for emergencies only.
