Emergency Communications 9-1-1
Dispatcher 911 Logo

If you have an emergency, dial 911

Located in New Port Richey, Pasco County 911/Central Dispatch is a consolidated public safety answering point (PSAP), responsible for handling requests for law enforcement, fire, and EMS agencies for the entire Unincorporated County of Pasco as well as the City of San Antonio.

Nine-one-one is the number most people in the U.S. and some in International countries call to get help in a police, fire or medical emergency. A 9-1-1 call goes over dedicated networks to the appropriate 9-1-1 answering point (PSAP) for the caller’s location, and trained professionals then send the emergency help needed.


Non-Emergency, dial 727-847-8102

Hanging up will only slow down our response. Emergency Communications strives to answer every call as they are received but we recognize that during certain times multiple calls are received for the same incident and need to be managed so all emergencies can be handled.

What Happens When You Call 9-1-1

When a 9-1-1 call is received by Public Safety Communications, an Emergency Communications Officer triages the call using a state-of-the-art computerized dispatch protocol from the International Academy of Emergency Dispatch to ensure an appropriate response to each call for service.

The call is then dispatched by the appropriate emergency dispatcher, and they send the closest Deputy, Paramedic, and/or Firefighter.  While the emergency dispatcher is sending first responders, the Emergency Communications Officer is simultaneously gathering information that is vital for the first responders.

Note:  First responders are already on their way while the Emergency Communications Officer is asking these questions!

Public Safety Communications is a consolidated communication center that provides emergency communications for and between the Pasco County Sheriff's Office , Pasco County Fire Rescue, and Dade City Police
