ABOUT VAIL PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS CENTER

VAIL PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS CENTER

CALL SIGN "VAIL"

The Vail Public Safety Communications Center is the multi-discipline public safety communications center serving all of Eagle County.
 
The Communications Center serves as the public safety answering point for 9-1-1 calls originating from all Eagle County telephone exchanges.  These calls can range from life or death assistance, to requests for road conditions, to animal control calls.  As each call is received, the dispatcher makes a determination as to the urgency of the call; the jurisdiction responsible for response, and takes action on it.
 
The Communication Center is primary dispatch for twelve public safety agencies.   The agencies are: Avon Police Department, Eagle County Airport Fire Department, Eagle County Paramedic Services, Eagle County Sheriffs Office, Eagle Police Department, Eagle River Fire Protection District, Greater Eagle Fire Protection District, Gypsum Fire Protection District, Rock Creek Volunteer Fire Department, Vail Fire and Emergency Services, Vail Police Department and Eagle River Water and Sanitation District.

Vail Public Safety Communications also interfaces and coordinates response with other agencies at the private, local, state and federal level. We work very closely with the Eagle County Coroners Office, Colorado Division of Parks and Wildlife, Colorado State Patrol, Vail Mountain Rescue, Vail Resorts; as well as the majority of local public works organizations and Eagle County Road and Bridge. Federal agencies include the United States Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The Communications Center is also responsible for updating the travelers information radio station (AM frequency 1610),  and the Vail Cable TV Channel 10.  The Center monitors over 125 fire alarms and 50 burglar alarms in the Town of Vail. To inquire about alarm monitoring, dial 970.479.2101, and ask to speak with the alarm account manager.
