911 System

911 saves lives.  When you are faced with an emergency, time plays a very important part in the outcome. That's why you should always use 911 when you need emergency help from Law Enforcement, Fire, an Ambulance or possibly all three. Even the smallest child can be taught to use 911.

911 is a 24 hour number and is accessible from any
working phone, and it is toll free.

Coffey County Communications Center is equipped with an enhanced 911 system capable of handling landline (home phones) and cellular 911 calls. In most cases we are able to confirm the 911 caller location and personal information, but the dispatcher will need to confirm specific information as well, to ensure that we respond with the help you need.

911 Information you should know!

911 should be used to report:

 Automobile Accidents
Fires/Odors of Gas
Medical Emergencies
Crimes in Progress
Suspicious Activity
911 should not be used to report:

 Abandoned Vehicles
Ask about Weather/Road Conditions
Operator Assistance
Cattle Out
Dogs Complaints
Non-emergency Calls for Service
Administrative Assistance

A good rule of thumb is, if you need immediate response (lights & siren), call 911!

Today's 911 system is state of the art and is required to conform to certain state statutes. Partial funding is received through telephone providers of landline (home phones) and cellular providers.
