911 Information

9-1-1  is an emergency telephone number that provides immediate and direct access to local Fire, Police/Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and other emergency responders.  
9-1-1  is a system to provide immediate response to calls for emergency services.

Grant County 9-1-1 Call Center
Grant County, including the incorporated cities of Carson, Elgin, Leith and New Leipzig, is supported with 9-1-1 service provided by STATE RADIO COMMUNICATIONS located within the Fraine Barracks complex in Bismarck.
9-1-1 Communication Centers exist to answer calls and provide dispatch services for both emergency and non-emergency calls for assistance.  These communication centers are staffed by professionals 24/7 (24 hours a day, 7 days a week). When a call is received, emergency responders are then dispatched.

The 9-1-1 system can be activated by landline and wireless (cellular) phones.  When you call 9-1-1 using a cellular phone, it is very important to give the dispatcher your cell phone number right away in case you lose connection.  Depending on your location in Grant County, when you dial 9-1-1 from a cell phone, your call may reach a cell phone tower that directs your 9-1-1 call to a dispatch center outside your jurisdiction. It is necessary to give the dispatcher the address of your location so they can contact the correct 9-1-1 center and relay the necessary information.  When you call from a landline phone, you will also be asked for your call-back number and the address of the emergency.

 If you need more information on 9-1-1 services, please call the Grant County Office of Emergency Management at 622-3944.
