Joint Base Charleston Partners With Charleston County Consolidated 9-1-1

Charleston, SC (WCIV) –

Charleston County’s Consolidated 9-1-1 Center is now processing all emergency calls for Joint Base Charleston. The change is to provide a more efficient 9-1-1 service, according to a press release from county officials Thursday. The partnership means Charleston County 9-1-1 will answer and process all 9-1-1 calls and texts from Joint Base Charleston. Charleston County 9-1-1 will then send the information electronically to Joint Base law enforcement and emergency workers for dispatching.
