The mission of the Livingston County 911 Central Dispatch is to assist in the safety and quality of life of the people in Livingston County by coordinating a comprehensive all-hazard emergency operational plan, and by providing professional, effective, efficient, telecommunication response to calls by citizens and dispatching the appropriate public safety responders.

 Smart 911

Another new service that Central Dispatch is launching is Smart911, a free service that allows individuals and families to sign up online and provide key information to 911 centers. This information enables more effective emergency response by law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services. Smart911 enables residents to create a Safety Profile at www.smart911.com for their entire household. Residents can customize their profile and share any information they want Central Dispatch and response teams to have in the event of an emergency. All information in the Safety Profile is private and secure, and it is seen only when the resident dials 911. When a resident makes an emergency call, their Safety Profile is automatically displayed to the 911 call taker, allowing them to send the right response teams to the right location with the right information.
