Welcome to the Grays Harbor Communications E-911 Center Web Site!

Grays Harbor Communications is a county wide emergency communications agency created by Interlocal Agreement for the purpose of providing Enhanced 9-1-1 services to the citizens and first responders within Grays Harbor County.

The 911 Center is funded by an assessment collected annually from each of the entities served, based upon their percentage of population and percentage of services used. The E-911 phone line costs are funded by a $0.70 local access line tax and reimbursements from a statewide $0.25 access line tax.

The Agency's first priority is to receive 9-1-1 calls and dispatch the appropriate law, fire, and medical services. The Agency also handles non-emergency public safety requests for assistance.

The E-911 Center is staffed by 21 employees who are trained in emergency telephone techniques, First Aid/CPR and public safety field radio communications.
