Had a very nice experience talking to these folks early this morning (2:30 am). I’ll spare the details to avoid a positive comment getting sullied, but two phone calls to two very nice operators rectified the problem in minutes.
I’ve had the same experience. I heard a car hit a stop sign near my house, and when I went out to see what it was, the sign was lying on the ground. Called the non-emergency number and they had someone there within 45 minutes to fix it. Couldn’t have been more pleasant, and they were certainly efficient too.
Everybody should put this number in their cell phones… very useful to have.
350sbc, the correct non-emergency number is 703-558-2222 as will be pointed out by Katie Pyzyk later this afternoon.
HL, you will get bored in a couple of days and go away.
The Arlington County Emergency Communications Center has informed ARLnow.com that it appreciates the praise, and would like to make one clarification. It would like residents to note the correct non-emergency number is 703-558-2222.
Am I missing something, or does our friend HL somehow know things that the rest of us don’t. Your powers are impressive, HL.
I called 2225 and it got me through… perhaps they all go through the same switch?
ECC told ARLnow.com that the 2225 is a backup number. It may function directly at times, but will typically kick callers over to the 2222 number. Calling the 2222 number ensures a direct connection and not getting bounced around.
