MHHA’s Median & Triangle
Monterey Heights has two small pieces of property within our boundaries- a median on Yerba Buena and a triangle on Miraloma. The city of San Francisco owns this land, and DPW is responsible for maintaining it.  If you notice any problems in these small areas (or even if the plantings start to look overgrown), please call  or contact 311 and describe the problem.  DPW should come to fix it.  Thank you for your help!

Life Threatening Emergencies or Crimes in Progress 911 (within San Francisco)

The purpose of San Francisco’s 911 Emergency Telephone System is to provide for the immediate response of police, fire, or medical personnel for emergency occurrences. To accomplish this, it is imperative that the calls received on 911 lines be restricted to those situations that require immediate dispatching of Police, Paramedic, or Fire Department personnel.

Note: When calling 911 on a cellular phone near a highway, the call is connected to The California Highway Patrol (CHP) dispatch center. In other areas in San Francisco, the call will connect directly to SF dispatch. You can also dial directly to SF dispatch:


Non-Emergency Situations – 415-553-0123

The non-emergency line is for situations that require the police, but do not require an immediate police response (e.g., loud parties, a group of juveniles loitering in front of your home, noise complaints).
