Networking with emergency, law enforcement & others for water safety

All 911 calls in Halifax County NC Emergency Services are answered in the 911 Emergency Center in Halifax, NC and then redirected accordingly to the area Local Fire and Police Departments noted below.

However, they can presently send emergency messages via text only to cell phones or email accounts. To register for this service, go on line to www.halifaxnc911.com and scroll down to Nixle. To report non emergency information to the Sheriff’s Department such as suspicious vehicles in the neighborhood, loud music, etc., call (252) 583-8521.

The Lake Gaston Association has released a report of its comprehensive five-county EMS/E-911 review conducted by the Public Safety Committee throughout last year. Since it is a 16-page report, the following is provided as a quick summary of “what you should know.”

The Community Shred was well attended and we had almost a continuous line of people safely disposing of records from the time the truck arrived a little late to the end of the event. We appreciate the donations which help to make this affordable within the safety budget.

For all emergencies in any location in the five counties surrounding Lake Gaston, dial 911. All 911 calls are responded to by county emergency 911 services which will ask for the nature of the emergency, a contact name, street address, and call back number.
