Welcome to Skagit 911

Skagit 911 is an Emergency Communications Center.  When you call 9-1-1 in Skagit County, you reach employees of Skagit 911.  From there, Dispatchers/Call-Takers take the information you provide them and advise the appropriate law, fire, or EMS department(s).  Skagit 911 provides radio dispatching for all Law Enforcement Agencies, all Fire Departments, all Emergency Medical Services in Skagit County, and even North Cascades National Parks Service.

In addition, Skagit 911's mission is to provide the most efficient means of dispatching emergency response units throughout Skagit County to better serve the citizens and protect life and property: “Respect, Protection and Safety for all in our community”.

Beginning March 1st, 2022, Skagit 911 is pleased to announce it will be able to accept Text-to-911 messages in an emergency.  It is still preferred that individuals with emergencies call 911. Text-to-911 is primarily intended for use by the Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or those with speech difficulties.  Text-to-911 will also work when an emergency occurs where it is unsafe to place a voice call to 911, or for a location where cell coverage is spotty, however a text may go through.
