Important 911 Information

With the upcoming potential of flooding in Huerfano County, we want to make you aware of how 911 calls are handled during an emergency event.

Currently the Huerfano Emergency Dispatch Communications Center can only answer two (2) 911 calls at a time, then all other incoming emergency calls are transferred to the Trinidad Communications Center.

Due to these circumstances, we are asking that you please only call 911 if you have a true emergency during a flooding event. This will help us keep as many calls as we can in Huerfano County, so we are able to assist our community during an emergency event.

We ask that you please utilize our non-emergency lines as an alternate to 911.

Please call either

719-738-1044 (Dispatch)

or

719-738-1600 (Sheriff’s Office)
