    911 Dispatch FAQs Answers To Your Questions How can I teach my children about 911? Teaching children when to call 911 is just as important as teaching them how to dial 911. A variety of resources are available to help parents and educators train children when and how to call 911. For more information, please visit 911 for Kids . Parents should also be aware that wireless phones without a current calling plan through a wireless provider are still capable of connecting a 911 call to a local call center. Children should be told not to call 911 from old phones and it is recommended that the battery is removed before you give an old phone to a child. Can I text 911? Yes! Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch Center does have the technology to receive text messages. If you need help and are unable to safely speak on the phone or are unable to speak at all, send a text message to 911. Call if you can, text if you can't! What should I do if I accidentally dial 911? You may have called 911 by accident, or your situation may have resolved itself, but it is important to let the 911 operator know this. If you end the call abruptly, the folks at the 911 center are going to assume that something has gone very wrong and will either call you back or send help anyway. This will take away from the 911 center’s ability to take calls and dispatch services to on-going emergencies, so make sure the 911 call taker tells you it is ok to disconnect before you hang up. And keep in mind that the call taker can dispatch responders to your location without disconnecting from the call, so, until you are instructed to do otherwise, make sure to hold the line so that you can provide any necessary information or assistance to the 911 operator. What about prank calls? It's a prank call when someone calls 911 for a joke, or calls 911 and hangs up. This is not the same as accidentally dialing 911. Prank calls not only waste time and money, but can also be dangerous. If 911 lines or call takers are busy with prank calls, someone with a real emergency may not be able to get the help they need. In Kentucky, it's against the law to make prank 911 calls. What if I can't speak English? When necessary, a 911 call taker can add an interpreter from an outside service to the line. A non-English speaking caller may hear a short conversation in English and some clicking sounds as the interpreter is added to the line. Can I call on a wireless or bluetooth device? You can call 911 on any hands free bluetooth or speaker device. It is important to remember to stay calm and speak clearly. If there are other involved parties nearby, only one person should be talking to the dispatcher. When multiple voices are trying to give answers over one another, the dispatchers cannot understand or try to ask for additional information. Speak as clearly as you can, try to remain calm and listen to what the dispatchers are asking you. The information that you provide is instrumental in getting the appropriate response dispatched to your emergency in the quickest way possible.

  • About | CCCDC 2023

    Board of Directors About our Board of Directors The Board Consists of seven members representative of the three political subdivisions that combined their individual dispatch centers in 2002 to create the Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch Center. Those entities were the Campbell County Fiscal Court, the City of Ft. Thomas and the City of Newport. In accordance with the Interlocal Agreement that created the Dispatch Center, the Board is composed of a Police Chief and Fire Chief of each of thosae subdivisions (the County Judge appoints a Fire Representative of their choosing) and one additional law enforcement position that is rotated across those three agencies every two years. This structure has allowed for a considerable amount of stability over the years. That stability has proven to be extremely important to the function and maturation of the communication center. Not that long ago full time fire departments simply answered the telephone (a seven digit number) at the fire station and responded independently. This situation led to a lot of miscommunication and delayed and/or caused inappropriate responses to emergencies. Our 911 Call Center is staffed with telecommunicators trained to provide prearrival instructions and equipment that will help pinpoint the location of the caller from landline phones. In the near future with the advent of Next Generation 911, we will be able to more closely pinpoint the location of mobile callers, as well. The support of our elected officials has been phenominal over the years allowing us to develop a sustainable funding mechanism that is being copied all over the Commonwealth. “Courage is knowing what not to fear” Plato About Us Serving Our Community The Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch Center answers and processes emergency 911 and non-emergency calls for assistance from the public, and dispatches or notifies the appropriate public safety first responders. When you call 911 in the United States, your call is answered by a local Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP). In Campbell County, that PSAP is Campbell County Consolidated Dispatch Center (CCCDC). Whether you need police, fire or medical help, the CCCDC telecommunicators are the group of people to get that process started. They are the first first responders, and often provide life-saving instructions by telephone while help is on the way. In 2022, over 135,000 dispatches were made by our skilled telecommunications staff, ensuring the safety and well being of all of the residents of Campbell County.

  • Address Visibility | CCCDC 2023

    Minutes Can Matter! Address Visibility First responders can't help you if they can't find you. Your safety in an emergency depends on responders' ability to find you quickly. Saving lives and property can come down to a matter of seconds. Emergency vehicles need to be able to see your address, day or night. High Visibility House numbers should be visible from the street. Numbers should be at least 4 inches tall. Be certain to make your number visible from both directions on mailboxes or sign posts. Trim any greenery or shrubs. When possible, choose reflective number or illuminate your house numbers. Contrasting numbers and backgrounds help responders. When in doubt, ask a first responder if they think that they could find your home. Low Visibility Do not use script writing. Numerals are preferable. Do not allow dirt, debris, snow or foliage to obscure your sign or curbside house numbers. Do not fix the sign to a gate, as it may be open and the sign unable to be seen when you need 911. Do not paint over your sign. Do not place decorations that will cover your number or obscure it in any manner. ​
