The Brazos County Emergency Communications District was created in 1988 to provide Enhanced 9-1-1 (E911) emergency communications to the citizens of Brazos County. During the planning stage of the neutral Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP), discussions were held concerning a combined dispatch center. Even before the District was created, local leaders had entertained the idea of a combined dispatch center. Various proposals for this combined operation were presented to City and County staffs. Bryan and Brazos County elected to participate in one of the first combined dispatch centers in Texas. We currently provide dispatch services for the City of Bryan Police and Fire Departments, the Brazos County Sheriff's Office, and all of the Volunteer Fire Departments in Brazos County. The District also manages E911 service for the above agencies as well as the City of College Station Police and Fire Departments, & Texas A&M University Police Department and Emergency Medical Service.
