We serve as a vital link between the residents, businesses, visitors and public safety agencies of Monroe County. We are committed to serving the County's emergency communications needs with integrity, cooperation and concern for the welfare of all.
911 Center Telecommunicators are the first of the first responders, providing the vital first link in the chain of public safety when handling emergency calls. The 911 Center dispatches Law Enforcement, Fire Service, and Emergency Medical Services for Monroe County, receiving an average of 85 calls a day and employing 13 dedicated employees who serve our community 7/24/365. The goal of Management and Staff of the Monroe County 911 Center is to provide immediate, courteous, and professional quality service. We strive to ensure an efficient, high-quality 9-1-1 communications system based on our standards of excellence and cooperation. Providing tele-first aid and CPR assistance when time is of the essence. This response would be impossible were it not for the many dedicated volunteers who selflessly serve the residents of the county many times at their personal expense.
