FANNIN COUNTY E-911 IS THE PRIMARY PUBLIC SAFETY ANSWERING POINT FOR FANNIN COUNTY
“EMnet” provides Fannin County E-911 with advanced warning of any emergency situation that concerns our service area. Fannin County E-911 seeks to provide the most effective and professional Emergency Communication possible and to provide rapid and convenient access to public safety for the citizens of Fannin County and those visiting.
Fannin County Enhanced 911 has been in operation since 1994 and continues to be upgraded. There are two communications officers on duty at all times with a third communications officer on duty part-time to handle emergency calls and to assist the public through their computer aided dispatch.
Fannin County E-911 was one of the first centers to utilize “Phase 1” cellular phone service in 2002. This traps the number of any cell phone caller allowing us to call back for additional information if necessary. In 2004, “Phase 2” went on line allowing Fannin E-911 to locate the site of any cell phone call with GPS coordinates.
