Florida E911

Since 1973, the State of Florida has been updating and building advanced technology statewide emergency number 911 systems, implemented by the counties, to serve its citizens and visitors in emergency situations.

In May 1997, 911 was established statewide. As of September 20, 2005 Wireline Enhanced 911 "E911" services provides the Public Safety Answering Point with the telephone number and the caller address in all 67 counties.

2007 Legislation changed the Wireless 911 Board to an E911 Board; revising membership, powers, duties, and responsibilities of the board.

As of March 31, 2008, all counties report Wireless E911 Phase I and Phase II completion. Phase I service provides the call back number and the location of the cell site. Phase II provides the capability to receive the call back number and the location information (latitude and longitude) provided for the cellular caller from the service provider.
