Lubbock Emergency Communication District

Our Mission

"The mission of the Lubbock Emergency Communication District is to provide the best possible, trouble free network for the citizens we serve to access emergency services by dialing 9‑1‑1; to provide the best tools (equipment and information) to each service provider agency that will enhance their ability to provide public safety services; and to educate the public on the effective and appropriate use of the 9‑1‑1 network."

When most people think of 9-1-1, the mental image is one of the men and women who answer the phone to assist in an emergency. However, 9-1-1 is actually a dedicated, high-speed phone network utilizing special hardware and software. This network is designed to quickly and efficiently route 9-1-1 calls to a predefined emergency answering point based on your calling location.

9-1-1 is a single, easy-to-remember number used to report emergencies to fire, police, and EMS.
