Campbell County Public Safety

The Campbell County Public Safety Department serves to provide animal control, emergency medical services, fire suppression and prevention, emergency management and preparedness, and E-911 services to the citizens of our locality.

The department consists of five divisions:

The department is administered using an "all-hazards" emeregency management approach.  We, as a unit, support and sponsor a wide variety of community education and awareness programs to enhance public understanding of available services and activities relating to emergency planning, preparedness and prevention.

Emergency services are provided on a 24-hour basis by a volunteer fire and a combination emergency medical services (EMS) system using career and volunteer emergency medical providers.  Campbell County is fortunate to be served bya strong volunteer contingent existing of eight volunteer fire departments and six volunteer rescue squads.  The department also provides the services of a full-time fire marshal's office to manage fire inspections and investigations.

An enhanced 9-1-1 emergency communications system allows computer tracking of citizen calls and assists in accurate dispatching and response of fire, rescue and law enforcement agencies.  Under the E-911 system, all roads are named and all structures are assigned a number on roads with three or more habitable dwellings.  The E-911 system also allows for the utilization of emergency medical dispatching (EMD), where a communications officer may provide basic medical instructions to a 9-1-1 caller in order to assist a sick and/or injured person.
