E-911 Fund:

The E-911 Special Revenue Fund receives revenue from a monthly $1.50 surcharge placed on all wired telephones in the county, a monthly $1.50 surcharge placed on all wireless telephones in the county, a monthly $1.50 surcharge placed on all VOIP telephones, and funds from the state for wireless prepay products. These proceeds are specifically earmarked to fund the county-wide emergency telephone system. This division, under the direction of the Emergency Services Director, employs certified communication officers that receives and processes emergency and non-emergency telephone calls on a county-wide basis and dispatches emergency personnel from the county's Emergency Services, county Sheriff's Office, Winder Police and Fire Departments, Statham Police Department, and the Auburn Police Department. This department also transfers emergency calls to other jurisdictions as needed.
