The McClain County 911 Trust Authority was formed September 18th, 2000, with the mission of "providing to the residents of McClain County the highest quality emergency services possible with the shortest response time possible."
McClain County 911 is not the police, firefighters, or medical staff that are sent on scene to resolve an emergency situation, nor is it the dispatcher that sends these personnel. We are the telecommunications infrastructure that ties together the emergency caller with emergency services. We are governed by a 5-member board with 3 staff members.
Our first duty is to use the 911 fees collected "for the installation and maintenance of the lines and equipment of 911 emergency phone services of McClain County" and "to promote, monitor, evaluate and facilitate installation of all related equipment so that it will function in an efficient and reliable manner thereby providing 911 service to McClain County."
