From Lubbock Police Department:

The Lubbock Police Department would like to remind everyone that during severe weather conditions, there are alternate numbers for non-emergency calls.

911 operators are being overwhelmed, receiving up to 1100 calls in a 5-hour period during severe storms which can affect police, fire and EMS response to life-threatening situations.

As an example, if you have power lines down that are not posing immediate threat or the power has gone off, please contact LPL at 775-2555 or 775-2509.

If a tree has fallen into the street or your fence has fallen and you feel like it should be reported, please call Codes at 775-2123.

If you feel that you must report damage to your home or business, please call Building Inspection at 775-2087.
