Bureau of Emergency Communications (9-1-1)
Public Safety Answering Point and Operations

The PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point), located in Concord, receives approximately two-thousand 9-1-1 calls each day. Police and fire requests are immediately transferred to the appropriate dispatch center. A nationally recognized Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) Protocol is utilized for callers reporting medical emergencies. Callers answer a few brief questions so that the proper response and pre-arrival treatment may be determined. Once identified the problem is relayed to the local dispatch center.

A rigorous 20 point requirement for accreditation ensures the Section’s compliance in certification, quality assurance, oversight, and ethics.
