B.        Kristin asked if, in an emergency situation in an outlying area, which law enforcement agency responds. Lynda says to tell 911, that you are in Lyons Fire Protection District. Agencies do overlap in responding. Its crucial to give 911 your specific address and the best way to get to your home.
