Our Dual Mission:
The 911 Communications Division receives and dispatches emergency calls for 20 area public-safety and public-service agencies and departments. The division also administers the city-county voice communication systems. In 2012, the Grand Island Emegency Center received a monthly average of 4300 emergency 911 calls and 10,500 non-emergency calls which resulted in 4400 Calls for Service each month.
Both divisions operate from the City/County Emergency Operating Center which is maintained in a state of readiness at all times to respond to emergencies and disasters.
