Barren-Metcalfe Emergency Communications Center was established in March of 1994 and is the Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for both Barren and Metcalfe Counties.  The Communications Department dispatches for all City/County Law Enforcement, Animal Control, Fire, EMA and EMS Departments. 

The Communications department is the vital link between the publics need for assistance, both emergency and non-emergency, and the agencies which provide that assistance.
