The Johnson County 9-1-1 Department provides a valuable service to those living in and/or passing through Johnson County. If you dial 9-1-1, you will get a qualified dispatcher on the phone that will assist you with your emergency needs. 9-1-1 also provides you with a Smart 911 system that allows you to provide the dispatcher with vital medical and personal information that could be needed during an emergency. Check our links to sign-up for Smart911. All 9-1-1 calls are routed through the 9-1-1 dispatch center and transferred to the appropriate agency.
Not only does Johnson County 9-1-1 provide you with emergency communications, but 9-1-1 also provides its residents and business with proper 9-1-1 addresses. When you build a new home or move one in, contact the office to get your 9-1-1 address established. In doing this, your address will be placed in the 9-1-1 system and will be available to dispatches in the event that you call 9-1-1. This assists emergency personnel with finding your location and getting to you as quickly as possible.
Along with addressing and location information, the 9-1-1 department also maintains the County and Private Road signs. If you notice a sign down or missing, please feel free to call us with the road type, number, and location to have it put back up or replaced. Signage within the county is a major priority to ensure that emergency personnel are able to find you.
