Local Emergency Declared by Charlottesville and Albemarle County, 979 INFO Line Activated
8/12/2017

Charlottesville City Manager Maurice Jones and Interim County Executive Doug Walker have simultaneously issued a Declaration of Local Emergency for the two jurisdictions.  This joint declaration allows local officials to request additional resources if needed to respond to ongoing events in the community which are currently localized in downtown Charlottesville.  Scheduled activities outside the downtown area are not impacted by ongoing events or by this declaration at this time.  Local officials continue to closely monitor the situation and will provide additional details as they are available.

979-INFO has been activated. This is a non-emergency line. All calls that relate to life threatening issues should still be made to 9-1-1
