Independence Day in Sedgwick County 2018
The Sedgwick County Courthouse and Sedgwick County offices will be closed Wednesday, July 4 in observance of the Independence Day holiday. Emergency services are available by dialing 9-1-1.
The Sedgwick County Emergency Communications’ non-emergency phone line, 316-290-1011, will be available during the following hours:
6:00 p.m., June 30, to 2:30 a.m., July 1
6:00 p.m., July 1, to 2:30 a.m., July 2
6:00 p.m., July 2, to 2:30 a.m., July 3
6:00 p.m., July 3, to 2:30 a.m., July 4
6:00 p.m., July 4, to 2:30 a.m., July 5
This line functions as an alternative to 911 and is meant to receive calls for non-emergency nuisances that do not pose a threat to life or property; examples include complaints pertaining to parties, excess noise, fireworks, etc.
The non-emergency line was established to prevent an influx of nuisance calls that can block emergency calls from reaching a call taker; the non-emergency line is activated during times of historically high call volumes and as otherwise needed. If someone calls 9-1-1 with a non-emergency, he or she will be transferred to the non-emergency line.
In order to ensure everyone has a safe holiday, residents should be aware of regulations on fireworks sales and discharges in Sedgwick County municipalities and unincorporated areas. This information is available at www.sedgwickcounty.org/fire.
