Though Astoria 9-1-1 is considered a small Center, we have truly outstanding employees standing ready to answer the call of duty





Each year an estimated 240 million 9-1-1 calls are made in the United States. According to the FCC about one-third of these are wireless, or calls made from cell phones. In our area this trend is actually closer to two-thirds. Astoria 9-1-1 received nearly 13,000 9-1-1 calls in the year 2013. In addition to these emergency calls our Dispatchers also handled over 46,000 non-emergency calls for service!
