Piatt County 9-1-1

The Piatt County Emergency Telephone System Board was organized April 25, 1994, to oversee the implementation of an Enhanced 9-1-1 in Piatt County.  9-1-1 is a three-digit telephone number that citizens may dial 24 hours a day for police, fire or emergency medical services.  The system is operational and dispatch points know almost instantly where the emergency call is coming from, as well as the name of the person living at that location.

The Piatt County 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) is located in the Piatt County Public Safety Building at 1216 Raymond Rd, Monticello, Illinois. The 9-1-1 Dispatchers are trained and certified in pre-arrival medical instruction as well as in emergency law enforcement, fire, and EMS dispatch procedures. The Piatt County Dispatchers, formally titled Telecommunicators, are employees of the County of Piatt and are directly supervised by the Sheriff of Piatt County. The 9-1-1 Director is also employed by the County of Piatt and reports directly to the Emergency Telephone System Board.
