The three-digit telephone number "9-1-1" has been designated as the "Universal Emergency Number," for citizens throughout the United States to request emergency assistance. It is intended as a nationwide telephone number and gives the public fast and easy access to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). 

The Lamar County 911 center receives and dispatches emergency and non-emergency calls for police, sheriff, fire and emergency medical service. The center is staffed by state-certified Communications Officers who are trained to answer and process 911 and other emergency telephone calls and dispatch public safety first responders using state-of-the-art communications equipment. These Communications Officers are also trained to communicate with communication impaired callers using TDD technology and people with language barriers of all types.
