Emergency Communications

The three-digit telephone number "9-1-1" has been designated as the "Universal Emergency Number" for citizens throughout the United States to request emergency assistance. It is intended as a nationwide telephone number and gives the public fast and easy access to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).

Coffey County's Emergency Communications Center is staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  They not only dispatch for the Sheriff's Office, but also all of the County's Fire, EMS, and Police Offices.
