Reverse 911
We have reverse 911 capabilities that will evacuate a designated area of our county in case of a disaster, by calling all telephones in that area and playing a recorded message instructing residents what action to take for safety.

Personnel
Currently we employ one supervisor, Lieutenant Jeff Bauckman, and nine full-time dispatchers to provide 24-hour service to the community. We utilize Emergency Medical Dispatching which provides pre-arrival instructions for the public while an ambulance is responding to the patient.
