Christian County Emergency Services is a consolidated

emergency communications center dedicated to

providing essential and life saving services to the

citizens, visitors and public safety officials of Christian

County, Missouri.

Our organization uses enhanced 9-1-1 answering

equipment, a state of the art computer aided dispatch

system and maintains a county-wide radio system;

servicing seven law enforcement agencies, seven fire

districts, and one ambulance district.

Christian County is located in southwest Missouri occupying approximately 564 square

miles and has been one of the fastest growing counties in the state.  The county has also

been in the top twenty fastest growing counties in the United States since the early

2000’s.  Christian County’s emergency communications saw no change until 2009 when

the voters passed a 1/4 cent sales tax to fund emergency communications.  This was

primarily due to a declining land line surcharge and centers being subsidized by local

government entities.  The new sales tax allowed for three separate communications

centers to consolidate and become a centralized 9-1-1 public safety answering point

(PSAP) and emergency communications dispatch center.
