Enhancing Emergency Response Through Inter-Agency Coordination

The Huntsville-Madison County 911 System is a combined 911 center. By locating police, fire and emergency medical systems together, we deliver faster, more accurate emergency responses.

Advantages of a Combined 911 Center Include:

  • Funding goes further by eliminating the need for duplicate equipment and services
  • Improved interoperability and cooperation when emergencies require a multiple-agency response
  • Reduced response times
  • Improved response accuracy
