MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR
Wilson Emergency Communications District (WECD) began receiving 911
calls in August 1990. The transfer method was chosen and continues to be used
for processing calls. All 911 calls made within Wilson County are received at
WECD and transferred to the applicable emergency responder. WECD receives
over 35,000 calls per year. Seventy percent of these calls are from cell phones.
Seventy percent are calls for law enforcement. Twenty five percent are medical
calls. Less than five percent are fire calls. Twenty five percent are unintentional
non-emergency calls transferred to law enforcement responders.
WECD utilizes the most advanced communications technologies for processing
calls and is among the first in the nation to implement Next Generation 911
internet protocol. WECD has invested over half a million dollars in a computer
network consisting of fourteen call processing stations that connects all
emergency responding agencies to WECD databases. These databases including
landline phone numbers with applicable names and addresses, aerial
photography labeled with all roads and addresses, 911 call history and
911-SAFER participant data. This data is vital in providing prompt efficient
emergency services. WECD is committed to maintaining accurate databases.
