Brunswick County Receives 2.1 Million in 911 Grant

Brunswick County Emergency Services Department has received a $2.1 million grant.

The grant is for the consolidation of the county’s emergency communications, including merging the county’s central communications and the Oak Island Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).

In addition to the consolidation of the two call centers, the grate is intended to fund construction of a new 911 emergency communications building.

Grants and other funding allocated from the state 911 board are collected through a 911 fee on phone bills.

The goal is to have the new communications center online and operational at the start of the 2014 tourist season.
