EMS Communications Division Graphic

The Cole County Communications Division operates the Cole County EMS Emergency Communications Center (MedComm).  As a secondary Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), MedComm is responsible for providing Emergency Medical Dispatch (EMD) to any caller reporting a medical emergency in our jurisdiction.  Each of our 911 Communicators are trained to deliver pre-arrival instructions to callers, including how to perform CPR or deliver a baby.  Utilizing Joint Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and 911 Phone Systems, our 911 Communicators work seamlessly with our communication partners at the Jefferson City Police Department Central Dispatch to deliver appropriate resources in the most efficient manner possible.
