Emergency Communications

The Division of Emergency Communications is responsible for the daily operations of the county's 911 center and the 800 MHz 10 channel P-25 Phase I Public Safety radio system. Our 24-7 operations provide emergency and routine communications for Fire, EMS, Sheriff, MSP and many other critical county services.

Communications Dispatchers in the Emergency Communications Division receive emergency 911 calls and dispatch the appropriate departments or agencies in accordance with established national standard and county specific dispatching protocols. Our Dispatchers are Emergency Communications professionals trained through the Maryland State Emergency Numbers System board (ENSB) and the Maryland Institute of Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMSS).
