The Jasper County Communications Center is a consolidated dispatch center; providing police, fire, and emergency medical dispatch services to the citizens and visitors of Jasper County.

Jasper County Communications Center was founded to provide the vital link between the citizens of Jasper County and all emergency responders, to include police, fire fighters, and emergency medical technicians during times of emergency. Housed in the Emergency Services Building, the center is built to operate four (4) console positions and serves as a backup center to Beaufort County Communications in times of disaster, should the need to relocate occur.

We utilize the Smart911 system to aid in obtaining information on the residents that have signed up for the free service. This system gives our telecommunication officers instant access to important information like the house description, medical conditions, as well as emergency contact information. This information is valuable in case you are unable to communicate with first responders. You are able to give as much or little information you want.
