Ever wonder where your call goes when you dial 911?  In Dakota County, the answer is it goes to the Dakota Communications Center (DCC).  The DCC is the centralized public safety answering point and dispatch center for all of Dakota County.  Established in 2005 through a Joint Powers Agreement between Dakota County and eleven cities located within the County, the DCC serves our residents 24x7x365 with a state-of-the-art 800 megahertz digital radio communications system and dispatch center.  The DCC allows police, fire, emergency medical services and sheriff’s personnel in multiple jurisdictions to communicate with each other, enhancing the interoperability of radio systems amongst all first responders.  Come learn about this essential public service that is ready and able to respond to any and all emergency calls that arrive.  For more information, check out their website at www.dcc.org.
