Emergency Communication


As the sole emergency communications center for all of Dickinson County, the Emergency Communication Department handles all administrative, non-emergency and 911 calls for five law enforcement agencies, seven EMS and first responder services and thirteen full-time and volunteer fire departments.

We are also the after-hours contact for several city utilities.
