About Us

Baldwin County 9-1-1 began operations May 16, 1988. Staffing at the time was 13 personnel, including 12 telecommunicators, (6 full and 6 part-time) and an operations manager. In addition to answering 9-1-1 calls and dispatching fire and emergency medical units, we are also responsible for creating and maintaining all addresses outside the various municipalities in the county.
Our 9-1-1 center is, we feel, the best in Alabama and strives to be the best in the nation.


All of Baldwin 9-1-1's full time and part time telecommunicators are EMD and APCO certified. As an added bonus, most of our employees are Emergency Medical Technicians, ranging in experience from Basic to Paramedic. Some employees also serve as members of volunteer fire departments giving them valuable experience.

Our current staffing:
  • 3 Executive Staff
  • 1 Training and Public Education
  • 1 QA/Records Custodian
  • 2 Information Technology
  • 5 GIS and Addressing
  • 45 Telecommunicators
  • 1 Business Adminstrator
Training / Public Education
  • 1 Business Manager


The 9-1-1 center consists of approximately 3,960 square feet and was built in 1987 by E.J. Builders of Foley at a cost of $314,000. We have 4 console positions, with the capability of expanding to 8 positions. Our building was designed to withstand winds of 175 MPH, equivalent to a category 5 hurricane. We are self-sufficient in the event that power and water service is lost. We have a primary generator as well as a smaller generator, in the event that the primary generator fails. Supplying these generators is a 1,000 gallon underground diesel tank. If our water supply is lost, there is a well with pump on site. We have also added a 5,000 square foot addition to the building in 2000 for administrative and training purposes.
