The primary mission of the White County 911 Center is to provide dispatch and emergency communications functions for all emergency response agencies dispatched by White County 911. The first and foremost priority for White County 911 Communications will always be emergency responder safety. Additionally, we will never lose sight of the fact that the citizens of White County entrust their safety and well-being to our care. White County 911Communications has made a commitment to provide the citizens of White County with the fastest and most efficient response to emergency calls possible. It is our promise to constantly evolve with the ever-changing arena of emergency communications, never resting on our laurels or allowing ourselves to become complacent where human life is concerned.
Communications Dispatchers perform a full range of radio and telephone operational duties in this 24 hour facility. Dispatchers are required to process and prioritize incoming calls for police, fire and EMS assistance.
We have six 911 lines:
- 3 dedicated for residental/business phones
- 3 dedicated for cellular phones
We have four non-emergency administrative lines.
Our 911 Center averages 1851 - 911 calls a month and 10,842 administrative calls a month. Just because the phone is not ringing doesn't mean there isn't work to be done. There are law enforcement officers on the radio that have requests, fire departments that need to be dispatched to calls, running license plates and driver license, and when other departments dispatcher is inundated with calls we may receive their over flow of calls from 911 or the officers on our radio. Dispatchers are required to process and prioritize incoming calls for police, fire and ambulance assistance.
EMERGENCIES BEGIN AND END WITH 911
