Who is NCT9-1-1?
The North Central Texas Emergency Communications District (NCT9-1-1) was created pursuant to Chapter 772, Subchapter H, of the Texas Health and Safety Code. NCT9-1-1 is engaged in the planning, implementation, and maintenance of an emergency 9-1-1 system for more than 40 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) in 14 counties surrounding the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex. NCT9-1-1 serves a population of 1.7 million and 10,800+ square miles.
- NCT9-1-1 DOES NOT answer or respond to emergencies.
- If you have an actual emergency requiring a response from police, fire, or emergency medical services (EMS), please call 9-1-1 or your local phone numbers for emergency services in your community.
- NCT9-1-1 will respond to inquiries regarding the communications and technology infrastructure of the 9-1-1 system within North Central Texas.
After the passage of House Bill 911 in 1987, the regional planning councils of Texas began to undertake the planning and implementation of 9-1-1 services on behalf of their local governments. Between June 1991 and January 1992, the planning, coordination of the system design, and general preparations for Enhanced 9-1-1 in our region was completed. The 30th anniversary of NCT9-1-1 occurred in 2021.
On December 3, 2018, NCTCOG 9-1-1 became the North Central Texas Emergency Communications District.
