Washington County Has a New Non-Emergency Number Notice: June 26, 2016

New Non-Emergency Number for Washington County, Texas- 979-277-7373

Washington County 911 has a new non-emergency telephone number as the transition from a city department to a county one is completed. In October of 2014, the Communications Department began transitioning to a county-operated facility; during that time, the non-emergency number remained listed with the city of Brenham.

"Changing the non-emergency number is really one of the last items that needs to be completed in this transition. The current non-emergency number is 979-337-7272. We are changing that number to 979-277-7373. We do want to make sure our residents remember that if they have an emergency, they need to call 911. The non-emergency number of 979-277-7373 is just that – for non-emergencies.," said Kristy Taylor, Operations Manager of the Communications Department.

Taylor said the current non-emergency number will continue to automatically roll over to Communications for 60 days. Calls that come in during the 61-120 day period will be directed to "push 1" to be connected to Communications. Calls that come in from 121-180 days will be given the correct phone number, and then the call will disconnect, requiring callers to dial the correct number.

"We are basically giving a six-month window for our residents to become accustom to the new phone number. We’d also like to take this opportunity to ask all of our residents to register with us if they have a medical or special need. It’s important for us to have this type of information in the event of a disaster. It allows us to check on those individuals as quickly as we can to ensure they are okay," she said.

Taylor reiterated that anyone with an emergency needs to call 911.

Recently, a crash map was created to inform Texas residents on the number of serious accidents per county and the reason behind the crashes. We think it is very informative and would like to share it with our citizens. Learn more.
