9-1-1 Communications

The City of Fairburn uses Fulton County Emergency Communications Center which handles 9-1-1 calls and dispatches emergency services responders. The state-of-the-art center also answers 9-1-1 calls for the City of South Fulton, Chattahoochee Hills, Union City, Palmetto, and unincorporated Fulton County. If you have a need for police, fire, or emergency medical service, and you have the option, dial 9-1-1 from your landline which is wired to provide location data to the 9-1-1 center allowing a timelier response to emergency situations. If you are calling from your cell phone, be sure to confirm your location with the call-taker.
