The Bureau County Emergency Telephone System Board was established May 9, 1995. The board is comprised of 15 members, that must include a representative of the BC Sheriff's office, SPV Police Chief, one member of a police department in BC, two members of a Fire Department in BC, two members of Ambulance Services in BC, one County Board Member and one citizen at-large from the county. We have tried to ensure that the members on our board are representatives from all of the communities that make up our 9-1-1 geographical areas.
ETSB 9-1-1 board members are appointed by the Bureau County Board. Recommendations from our board are presented to the BC Board and the final decision is made by them.
