With concern expressed by local clergy and elected officials following one or more recent acts of family violence by those new to Los Angeles or with limited English language skills, the men and women of the Los Angeles Fire Department remind you that multi-lingual and culturally sensitive personal assistance is always available by telephone.
Within Los Angeles County, any person needing physical or emotional crisis support and advocacy, including referral to substance abuse, health, shelter, senior help and care concerns, disabled or public social services, can request non-emergency human services assistance at any hour by simply calling Infoline LA/2-1-1 LA County at (800) 339-6993 or 2-1-1.
Additionally, anyone experiencing or witnessing an emergency: defined as a situation that endangers human life and demands the immediate response of Police, Firefighters or Paramedics, can request that help in more than 150 languages from anywhere in California by calling 9-1-1.
