A Quick Lesson in Using 9-1-1
The Lexington County Communications Center strives to utilize a team of professional Telecommunicators who provide excellent customer service to any person needing assistance.
The core values of our mission statement are professionalism, courtesy and respect.
Functions of the 9-1-1 Center
Assist all citizens and visitors by answering emergency and non-emergency calls, dispatching, and maintaining records.
Provide medical pre-arrival instructions to assist callers in giving help to the sick and injured before medical personnel arrive.
Please do not call 9-1-1 unless you have an emergency.
If you need an officer for a non-emergency response, please contact your local law enforcement agency by calling their published telephone number.
If you call 9-1-1 and do not have an emergency, please tell the operator. If you do not speak with an operator to tell us you don't have an emergency, we will have to send a Police officer to make sure. If we send help where no help is needed, we may not have units available to respond to real emergencies.
