Tell Us What You See on New Crowdsource Reporting Map
Posted 12:01 p.m.
As a whole community, we believe you can be eyes and ears in the field to help us know what’s going on in your community.
To that end, we’ve launched a new crowdsourcing map so you can help report and identify where issues may be in your community. This reporting system is NOT a replacement for 9-1-1. If you are experiencing an emergency or need to officially report an incident, please call 9-1-1 or the public safety non-emergency number at 703-691-2131, TTY 711.
We are not asking that you risk your safety to report anything; please stay safe in the hours and days ahead.
You can report four types of incidents:
- No Power (information for us only, please officially call your power company ASAP)
- Trees Down
- Flooded Road
- Traffic Light Out
This reporting system is a new tool we’re testing, so we do not expect it will be comprehensive. We will monitor your reports. If we see something significant that you share, we will share it with emergency responders/planners. This will give us a selected sense of what’s happening across Fairfax County as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
