The City of El Paso has activated the 3-1-1 phone number that connects citizens with the City’s Customer Service Call Center to answer phone calls relating to city services and programs. The purpose of the Customer Service Center is to centralize the incoming calls into one agency location rather than the current process of various numbers and locations. The centralized Customer Service Center allows for improved service to citizens and reduces the number of 911 and non-emergency calls. Call Center hours of operation are Monday-Sunday 7:00 am to 11:00 pm including holidays.
What is 3-1-1?
311 is a toll-free, non-emergency number. Dial 311 from anywhere within the city of El Paso for information or requests for City services. 311 is your direct line to City Hall. No more trying to remember different phone numbers for different departments.

While we try to answer questions on the first call, sometimes transfers are necessary.
How will police, fire or medical emergency calls be handled?
In the case of police, fire or medical emergencies, calls will be immediately transferred to the 911 Communications Center for dispatch.
