The Communication Center duty is to provide professional services to the citizens and public safety agencies of Grand County utilizing team-oriented, professional, courteous, and trained telecommunicators.
The Grand County Communications Center is the primary answering point for 911 calls in Grand County. We dispatch emergency and non-emergency calls for service and provide support for:
Grand County Sheriff’s Department
Fraser Winter Park Police Department
Granby Police Department
Kremmling Police Department
Grand County EMS
Fire and Rescue
Search and Rescue
Road and Bridge
The Communications Center also handles air traffic control for Flight for Life and Airlife medical helicopters while in Grand County.
We have reverse 911 capabilities that will evacuate a designated area of our county in case of a disaster, by calling all telephones in that area and playing a recorded message instructing residents what action to take for safety.
Currently we employ one supervisor, Lieutenant Jeff Bauckman, and nine full-time dispatchers to provide 24-hour service to the community. We utilize Emergency Medical Dispatching which provides pre-arrival instructions for the public while an ambulance is responding to the patient.
