WICHITA, Kansas – The non-emergency line for fireworks complaints is open in Sedgwick County.

The non-emergency number is 316-290-1011.

The Sedgwick County Emergency Communications non-emergency phone line will be available during the follow hours:

  • 6:30 p.m. July 3 to 3 a.m. July 4
  • 6:30 p.m. July 4 to 3 a.m. July 5
  • 6:30 p.m. July 5 to 3 a.m. July 6

The 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 911 with a non-emergency, he or she will be transferred to the non-emergency line.
