In establishing this site our intent is to provide you with information that will help educate the citizens of Nez Perce County should they ever need to make a call to 9-1-1. On this site you will find information on what to do when calling 9-1-1, 9-1-1 Education materials, links to other 9-1-1 and Emergency Information & Communication sites as well as links to Law Enforcement, Fire, and Medical Response agency sites (local, regional, & national).

While our hope is that you never have need to call 9-1-1 we want to make your experience calling 9-1-1 one that will provide you with the help you need as quickly as possible should the need to call present itself.

Dave Taylor - 911 Coordinator

Remember - " Call if you can; Text if you can't "
