How do I follow up on service requests?

El Paso 3-1-1 will send an automatic “Service Request” to the corresponding department for their response. A tracking number is assigned to each Service Request and the public can call back to check on the status of their request. While we try to answer questions on the first call, sometimes transfers are necessary.
