If you see something, say something: SXSW edition

Wednesday, March 14, 2018 by Katy McElroy

It gets pretty crazy out there during South by Southwest. The city would like to remind all festivalgoers (and those residents who are just trying to get through the next couple of weeks) that there are ways to reach out if you feel like your health or safety, or someone else’s, is being threatened:

  • If you notice anything potentially dangerous or suspicious, including suspicious packages, the city urges you to call 911 immediately. If it’s not an emergency, and you’d rather keep it off the phone, you can submit an anonymous tip to
  • You can report any general nonemergency complaints by calling 311, for example if you’re concerned that a festival food service establishment is lacking in terms of cleanliness or permitting. There is also an app for reporting such observations, available for Apple and Android devices.
