Welcome to the Clark County Office of Emergency Communications
The Clark County, Indiana Office of Emergency Communications, also known as the Clark County 911 Center, operates 24 hours a day seven days a week and is responsible for answering all 911 and non-emergency calls for the citizens of Clark County, Indiana.
Our Emergency Communications Center is staffed by public safety professionals who are trained to answer 911 telephone calls, as well as dispatch police, fire and emergency medical services. Our trained Emergency Communications Operators gather critical information from callers and send the information via computer to police, fire and or paramedic dispatchers who are responsible for relaying the information to the first responders. The 911 team works in partnership with all of Clark County's public safety agencies to ensure the safety and quality of life for residents, businesses and visitors.
Although the Clark County 911 Center has multiple functions, there are two primary job functions within the communications center.
- Receiving incoming calls. When a telephone call is received by the Center either via 911 or on a non-emergency line, the Telecommunicator collects the information from the caller. The information is then prioritized for dispatching.
- Dispatching the call. The operator then dispatches the call to the appropriate agency or agencies.
