What is enhanced 911?

Enhanced 911, or E911, is a system which routes an emergency call to the appropriate 911 center, and automatically displays the caller's phone number and address. The 911 call taker will typically ask the caller to verify this information, which appears on his or her computer screen. In Santa Rosa County, all 911 calls are routed to the Santa Rosa County Emergency Management Communications Center, except calls placed within the City of Gulf Breeze. At both of these agencies, you will be asked what type of assistance you need in order to direct you to the appropriate personnel.
