 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 2016, the Grand Island Emergency Center received a 35,013 emergency 911 calls and 39,857 non-911 calls which resulted in 56,616 Calls for Service.

The Emergency Management Division administers the emergency preparedness program for all of Hall County. This includes the local emergency operations plan, public warning system, emergency public information and resources.  The Emergency Management Division also coordinates the emergency response of all County public safety agencies with State and Federal agencies as needed.

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.
