  • Minor injuries that do not require medical attention.
  • Injuries that require first aid.
  • Injuries that require medical attention beyond first aid.
  • Property damage resulting from an unsafe act or unsafe condition that may or may not have resulted in injury.

A public saftey officer officer will respond to assist you and will request Troy Fire Department paramedics if necessary. When appropriate, you will be transported to a local hospital for follow-up care.
