Enhanced 911 Program
The Washington State Enhanced 911 (E911) Program is the result of a 1991 voter referendum directing enhanced 911 emergency communications systems to be available statewide by Dec. 31, 1998. The referendum provided for a state E911 coordination office. The office facilitates local planning and installation of such systems.
Funding provisions are included in the referendum for county and state excise taxes to support implementation of E911 plans and systems. The state used state 911 excise taxes to help fund those counties that could not implement E911 with excise taxes collected by their own county.
The E911 Unit of the Emergency Management Division works with counties and communications' companies to ensure the E911 system is operational and available to all in the State of Washington.
