911 is an ESSENTIAL JOB and the dispatchers must work to handle 911 calls and dispatch all of our First Responders. BuEComm is following all the COVID 19 or the Coronovirus social distancing RULES and at this time NO ONE is allowed into the

9-1-1 Center except staff. If you need to contact someone with a non-emergency call please call the 815-872-1420 line. Stay healthy and safe.​

Texting, using or even holding your phone in your car while in drive is now a MOVING VIOLATION!

SCOTT'S LAW-  PLEASE if you see a vehicle on the side of the road MOVE OVER.  This law includes Law Enforcement, Fire and EMS Vehicles, Cars, Semi-Trucks, Tow Vehicles, or any other vehicle on the side of the road.
