Emergency Communications Center
The Emergency Communications Center (ECC) provides all communications needs of the Police and Fire Departments. This includes all telephone and radio data networks and communication among police, fire and ambulance services. The Fairfield Emergency Communications Center is responsible for receiving all 911 emergency calls, as well as non-emergency Police and Fire calls. The communications center handles about 250,000 phone calls per year.
Communications are computerized and work off of multiple radio towers. The police vehicles are also equipped with mobile data terminals that allow officers to access law enforcement computer and information networks as well as send confidential information car to car and to other police departments.
The ECC is an integral part of the Town’s reverse 911 system. Personnel monitor the Fairfield County Police Hot Line and other inter-town frequencies for major events occurring in surrounding communities. The ECC is staffed by highly trained men and women who operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Please note: Fairfield Public Safety services and Emergency Communications Center are open 24 hours a day and ready for all emergencies and contingencies.
