911 Management

GFX_911 Management PageA lot goes in to emergency response, and while the most visible aspects of protection and rescue may be the lights and sirens, dispatchers and call takers at Marion County’s Public Safety Communications Department are working hard behind the scenes.
The 911 Management Division is a prime example as it oversees the county’s addressing system, which includes the naming of roads as well as assigning numbers to houses and businesses. When new homes, businesses and road infrastructures are added to Marion County, the 911 Management Department records this information in the GIS mapping system that dispatchers in the Communications Center utilize when someone calls 9-1-1.
