Welcome to the Department of Communications

The Bedford County Department of Communications operates 24/7 and is the lifeblood of providing the vital connection between citizen requests fir police, fire and medical assistance. We will continually strive to provide superior communication support to the responding public safety agency and when indicated, we will provide appropriate, life-saving, pre-arrival instructions in a competent and conscientious manner. 

We recognize the need for continuing education of the public in the vital and proper use of the E911 system. We recognize that our ultimate success is tied directly to the spirit of cooperation and teamwork between the consolidated public safety agencies, the E911 communication center staff and the residents and visitors of Bedford County.
