Agency description

Under the vision of the Mayor, Chicago launched the Office of Emergency Communications on September 25, 1995 to coordinate the City’s delivery of police, fire and Emergency Medical Service resources to 911 calls. After September 11, 2001, the Office of Emergency Communications began coordinating the City’s planning for issues related to Homeland Security. The department also took on the responsibilities performed by the Fire Department’s Bureau of Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Services and created what is now known as the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC). The department continues to evolve and includes 911 emergency services, 311 city services, the Office of Emergency Management, and City Operations.
