Using a Cell Phone

When you call 911 from a cell phone in Riverside County, a Riverside County Sheriff’s dispatcher will answer and route the call to the proper authority. To directly reach the City of Temecula Emergency dispatch, call 951-776-1078 instead of 911 (from your cell phone only). Please save this number in your cell phone.

Using a Landline

If you call 911 from your home, business, or public phone, the law enforcement agency that has jurisdiction will respond to the call. In most cases, that will be the Temecula Police Department, which contracts with the Riverside Sheriff's Department.

How Emergencies Are Handled

Emergencies in Temecula are handled based upon the type of incident. As a general rule, if you are confronted by an emergency situation, start by calling 911. Find out more about the different agencies on our Law Enforcement Agencies page.

Emergency Response Program

The Emergency Response Program handles all fire, life, and environmental emergencies within 5 minutes.

Paramedic Request
