Architect’s Rendition of the new 911 Center

Work is underway to construct a new 911 Emergency Communications Center for Mitchell County. The 5,000 square foot, $3 million dollar facility will not only serve Mitchell County citizens, it will be a back-up for neighboring counties to use if their 911 facilities were evacuated or systems went down. Mitchell County has received a grant and an extension to construct the facility, which will be located on the access road to the new Courthouse. 

Our Location

Mitchell County Communications is located at 117 Long View Drive in Bakersville, NC 28705.
