E-911 Director - Misti Drew
The Marshall County E-911 Center serves as the hub of emergency response in the county. Marshall County E-911 dispatches for all nine fire departments, three police agencies, Emergency Management, Rescue, EMS, Animal Control, Marshall County First Responders, Red Cross and CIMAP.
We also dispatch via mutual agreements for agencies such as the Kentucky State Police, Park Rangers, Fish and Wildlife, etc. when they are assisting in-county, and numerous other agencies, including call outs for the Road Department, State Highway Department, Multiple Utility Companies, Air Medical, Refuse Department, etc.Our annual call volume between public admin, internal office and 911 call volume is over 100,000.
On average, Marshall County E-911 logs over 1,000 communications per day between phone, radio and person-to person traffic. In the past three years, we have dispatched over 90,000 calls for service to local agencies and have also served as the activation point for emergency sirens in the county.
911 Funding a New EraDear community members, as many of you know, 911 centers around the state and country are having to shift their primary source of funding away from landlines due to the declining number of users and the unfair burden this places on the elderly and area business owners within our communities.
As a result, local leaders are looking to address this issue and help provide the best 911 service possible for Marshall County.
Several town-hall meetings have been held at various locations across the county. If you were unable to attend one of these meetings, you can still view the presentation information by clicking the link below.
