DES Mission Statement:
The Directorate of Emergency Services (DES) protects the life, health, property, and environment of the Fort Wainwright community through quality Law Enforcement, Physical Security, Antiterrorism, and Fire Protection/Prevention efforts.
Fort Wainwright's Dispatch Center handles emergency and non-emergency calls for police, emergency medical, and fire incidents.
For emergency situations you should always call 911.
Phone numbers starting in 353 or 361 will go direct to Fort Wainwright Dispatch. All other calls, including cellphone calls will go to City of Fairbanks Dispatch, let the operator know, “I am on Fort Wainwright.”
Call for any criminal act or public safety issue.
All fires, regardless of how minor in nature, including those already extinguished, must be reported to the Fire Department immediately.
Listen closely to the dispatcher and answer all questions to the best of your ability. Be patient and do not hang-up until the dispatcher tells you to.
For non-emergency situations, please call:
Police: 907-353-7535
Fire/Medical: 907-353-9170
Dispatchers are highly trained to assist you, whether you call 911 or the non-emergency lines.
