Emergency Communications - 911
The mission of the Burke County Emergency Communications Center (BCECC) is to serve the community and local government agencies with effective emergency communications services. We will serve as a facilitator of communications for public safety agencies in Burke County. Burke Emergency Communications Center will maintain a high standard of quality service to the citizens of Burke County.
Hyper-Reach is an emergency notification system, a way to send your voice, a text message, a TTY (teletype for the hearing impaired) message, or an alarm message to as many people as you need to reach, either from our website or with just one phone call.
Hyper-Reach, by default, will call your home phone number (if it is a listed number) in the event of local emergencies or community alerts, but not Weather Alerts (without signing up).
Hyper-Reach is currently being used by dozens of law enforcement agencies, corporations, churches, schools, and community groups.
NCDOT (North Carolina Department of Transportation)
Travel information is currently disseminated to the public using venues such as Highway Advisory Radio, Dynamic Message Signs, and on other NCDOT services. The North Carolina 511 system is part of a nationwide effort to disseminate travel information to the public via another venue, the telephone. 511 in North Carolina was implemented in the summer of 2004.
511 uses an automated voice response system, which means callers are guided through a menu with a series of requests. Callers can ask for specific areas, and the system will provide information about traffic incidents, closures and other important roadway conditions.
Local law enforcement agencies seek credible information concerning suspects involved in crimes. Remember, you do not have to leave your name and a cash reward may be offered if your information leads to an arrest.
