Welcome to the City of Waltham 9-1-1 Center. Waltham is a city with a residential population of more than 60,000. This figure at least doubles during each weekday, presenting the public service agencies with some unique challenges in this community located 9 miles west of Boston. Waltham is the home of two major colleges. Brandeis University ( 415 South St. ) and Bentley College ( 385 Beaver St. ). Waltham also has a major highway run directly through it, Route 128. This makes Waltham streets very busy when there is heavy rush hour traffic on Rte 128.

Frequently Asked Questions
- I called 911 to request an ambulance for my daughter. Two minutes later a Fire Engine showed up. A few minutes later the ambulance arrived and took my daughter to the hospital. Did you make a mistake?
- I called 911 to ask about donating to a Fire Department fundraising drive for cancer. The man who answered rudely switched on a recording telling me to look up the business number. When I called back on that number the same man answered the phone!
- Let's say I'm choking and cannot speak. Can I call 911?
- Because of a severe physical challenge, I communicate with a TTY (teletypewriter). Can I call 911?
- If the person who answers my 911 call already has my phone number and address on his computer screen, why am I still asked to provide that information? Isn't that a waste of valuable time?
