911 Emergency Service Fee
Provides funding for the operation of 911 emergency services in your area.
Who put it on the bill?
What is it?
The 911 Emergency Service Fee provides funding for the operation of 911 emergency telecommunications services in your area. Emergency personnel must have the capability to identify the location of a caller when they dial 911. The fee, which is applied per access line, funds communications systems that support emergency and quick response police, fire and ambulance services with identification of phone number and location. Customers pay for this service and other 911 communication costs through state and county 911 surcharges. Not all counties have the 911 system yet, but may collect for future implementation.
Who gets the money?
The money from the 911 fee can only be spent in the region in which it is collected. The Commission on State Emergency Communications (CSEC), which administers 911 services, allocates funds for specific needs to the individual regional planning commissions.
Other ways it may appear on the bill
In some states, this fee may appear on the bill combined with other similar fees and surcharges, including:
