Dial 9-1-1 in an Emergency!
If you are concerned that someone might harm themselves or others, you can dial 911 to request that a law enforcement official be sent to assess the situation. Law enforcement can determine if the individual at risk should be screened for an involuntary hospitalization, called a “Baker Act.” At that time, the individual could be transported to the Crisis Triage and Treatment Unit in Bunnell or to one of the two adult Crisis Stabilization Units in Daytona Beach (one at SMA Behavioral and one at Halifax Health) or to the children’s Crisis Stabilization Unit at Halifax Health.
