WV Safe Schools HELPLINE is Operational

August 27, 2001

The new statewide WV Safe Schools Helpline becomes operational as the new school year begins.  

This new phone Helpline, operated by the WV Fire Marshal's Office, is a 24 hours a day, toll free number that uses live operators (no recordings) to respond to reports of acts that could have a negative impact on students, staff, or school property.  

Anyone is welcome to use the hotline, and no identifiable information will be asked of the caller. The same number is operational for calls inside WV, as well as outside of the state.  

Callers will be issued an incident number, which can be used to call on a later day to find the status of your call or what action was taken.  

The HELPLINE number is 1-866-SAFEWVA (1-866-723-3982).
