Emergency Communications

The Johnson County Emergency Communications Center (ECC) serves an area of approximately 550 square miles in suburban and rural Johnson and Miami counties. The ECC dispatches more than 40,000 calls per year to Fire and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) for 14 departments.

Johnson County is one of eight counties which makes up the metropolitan Kansas City area. Each of the county’s fire departments have implemented automatic aid agreements with the other departments for both fire and critical medical calls. Satellite technology installed on most of the units allows ECC staff to dispatch the closest ambulance and fire unit to calls.
