The Anderson County Unified Emergency Communications Center handles all Emergency and Non-Emergency call taking/dispatching services for Anderson County jurisdictions.  The Anderson County Unified Emergency Communications Center Operations began back in late 1999 to early 2000 when all agencies transitioned over to a consolidated 911 Center.  

The Anderson County Unified Emergency Communications Center consists of 64 Communications Personnel.  Personnel assigned to the 9-1-1 Center work 12-hour shifts and generally consist of 14 per shift working 7am to 7pm or 7pm to 7am, with an overlapping power shift that works noon to midnight.
