Emergency Communication Commission
COVID-19 Message

Slowing the spread of COVID-19 is important, but your voice still matters. During the State of Emergency, The Emergency Communications Commission will be taking electronic comments from the public in lieu of in-person remarks during their monthly meetings. The E.C.C. will not meet in person until further notice in order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and to protect the safety, health and welfare of the public and St. Louis County employees.

Please review the monthly Agenda for information on how you can participate in The Emergency Communications Commission Public Comment Forum.


Emergency Communications Commission

We were created to administer an emergency communication system including an inter-operable, county-wide wireless radio communication network providing communications links that permit participating governmental entities to communicate within the geographic boundaries of the county. This includes the radio system, the emergency alert system, and the enhancements to the 911 system.
