The Monroe County 911 Center began operations in July, 2006 and has been providing the citizens of the county emergency telephone service on a continuous 24 hour basis since it's inception.
The 911 Center dispatches Law Enforcement, Fire Service, and Emergency Medical Services for the entirety of Monroe County. The goal of the supervisors and staff of the Monroe County 911 Center is to provide the most expedient and adequate response to the residents of Monroe County possible. This response would be impossible were it not for the many dedicated volunteers who selflessly serve the residents of the county many times at their personal expense.

911 Mapping & Addressing
Monroe County is proud to announce that the mapping project is in the final stages. Workers are currently out delivering informational postcards for homeowners to fill out and return so each house, with a telephone, can be entered into the system.
More information on the statewide mapping project can be found online at http://www.addressingwv.org. Please check back here for updated information on this important project for Monroe County
The Monroe County Office of Emergency Services functions as a resource management agency during times of natural or manmade disasters that occur in the county.
