Welcome to the Maine Emergency Services Communication Bureau

The Emergency Services Communication Bureau, the state agency responsible for Enhanced 9-1-1 in Maine. We are proud to announce that 100% of Maine's population now has service. The last town, Lincoln, was activated July 8, 2008. Public safety officials continue to credit this system with saving lives and solving crimes.

Although Enhanced 9-1-1 has many public safety benefits, the two most important features are:

  1. The public's ability to dial 9-1-1 for all emergencies.
  2. Automatic caller location information, critical to speeding up the dispatch of emergency services.

Only call 9-1-1 to save a life, report a fire or stop a crime. For non-emergencies, use the police, fire and medical service telephone numbers provided in the white pages of the local phone book.
