If temporary 9-1-1 service disruptions occur, the Lufkin Police and Fire Dispatch Center will receive calls through its main number, (936) 633-0356, and route the calls to the appropriate emergency response agency.


During this planned work, as well as during any unplanned disruptions, callers who cannot reach emergency services by dialing 9-1-1 may call their local law enforcement agency or the Lufkin Police and Fire Dispatch Center main number, (936) 633-0356.
