The Hilton Head Island E911 Communication Center serves as the Primary Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for Hilton Head Island and Daufuskie Island and is the backup center for the Beaufort County E911 Dispatch Center.
The 911 Communications personnel are the unseen, but extremely important link, in the chain of response to an emergency. When a Dispatcher answers a call in the Communications Center, they become the first, first responder. In addition to trying to determine what type of help is needed, personnel frequently help callers identify their exact location so assistance can be sent to the correct location. This can be a challenge given the number of annual visitors to Hilton Head Island.
The Communications Center has a comprehensive Quality Assurance/Quality Improvement program for reviewing both fire and medical calls.
