Beaver County Emergency Services

Beaver County Emergency Services manages the county’s 9-1-1 dispatch operations center and also serves as the county’s Emergency Management Agency, working in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA) on emergency preparedness, planning, mitigation, response, and recovery.

Emergency Services is also the home of the county’s Hazardous Materials Response Team 700 and the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) and is the contact point for many other public safety organizations, including VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), CART (County Animal Response Team), Emergency Medical Services, and Fire, Police, and Municipal Emergency Management services. Please see menu at right for more information on any of these groups or services.

Emergency Services works in conjunction with a number of county and offsite agencies to provide comprehensive public safety guidance and emergency support to the residents and businesses of Beaver County.


TEXT to 9-1-1 is easy! Simply send a short, but detailed, text message of the location of your emergency, your municipality, and the reason for the emergency message to 9-1-1 using this step-by-step guide:

    • In the “To” field enter the numbers 911
    • The first text message should contain: 
        • The address/location of the emergency, including municipality (if known). The information from your cell phone is not enough for operators to find you.
        • The type of help needed (fire, ambulance, police, etc.)
        • Be prepared to answer questions and follow instructions from the 9-1-1 operator (You may want to place your phone on silent so not to alert intruders.)   
    • Once you have typed a short but detailed text message with the information listed above, click send. 
        • Use simple words and do not use abbreviations or slang
        • Do not send photos or videos 
        • Do not send your emergency text to anyone other than 9-1-1 (for example, no group texts) 

As with all text messages, 9-1-1 texts may take longer to be received, may be received out of order, or may not be received at all. Therefore, it may take slightly longer to dispatch emergency services originating from a text. 
Call if You Can, Text if You Can’t!
