Emergency Contacts

Call 911 in a cave emergency.
A few years ago Eastern Region, NCRC decided that it is best for cavers with an emergency to call 911 or the local emergency number if it is not 911. The 911 call centers should be up-to-date on who to call if there is a cave emergency. however, since this is not the case for all of the areas we cave in, Here’s a short list of cave rescue contact numbers:

    • Eastern Region NCRC (VA,WV,PA,NC,MD,DE,NJ) 911
    • Northeast Region NCRC (NY,MA,CT,VT,NH,ME,RI) 914-964-2424
    • Tennessee: 800-262-3300 (in state), or 800-258-3300
