Obtaining a 911 Address

management operations. To obtain an address, please contact the Coordinator.

E-911 Board

The E911 Board is made up of representatives from each emergency response jurisdiction within Ringgold County. This board is responsible for anything related to the 911 system other than personnel. The main topic that they work on is the financial side. This board is regulated by Iowa Code 34A.

They look at how the funds we receive from the 911 surcharge on your phone bill are best spent. Upgrades and equipment purchases to the communication center, radio and pager purchases for county emergency personnel and maintenance contracts to keep all of the communications running are a few of the expenses those funds are used for. This is also the board that recommends how much the county and its citizens should pay for the E911 Surcharge that you pay every month.
