The Consolidated Communications Bureau was created in 2004 for the purpose of providing consolidated emergency communications to state, county and local public safety agencies. The Bureau operates three Regional Communications Centers (RCC) in Augusta, Bangor, and Houlton that provide both Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and emergency dispatch services for police, fire and emergency medical services. The RCCs provide dispatching services for State Police, Maine Warden Service, Maine Drug Enforcement Agency, State Fire Marshals Office, Maine Turnpike Authority, and the Departments of Marine Resources and Environmental Protection. In addition, each of the three Regional Communications Centers provide dispatch services for dozens of fire, rescue, police, and ambulance services across Maine.

First Responder Questionnaire for persons with disabilities (including Autism Spectrum, dementia, and Alzheimer's)

The Department of Public Safety has updated the questionnaire available to families, caretakers, and providers of people with disabilites. The information contained within the questionnaire will be provided to emergency responders should the person go missing, and could be vitally important in finding them quickly & safely & promoting a positive experience between our responders & the person with a disability. The questionnaire is available in 3 formats. Please choose the format which works best. The questionnaire can be filled out online & emailed to the DPS CAD Administrators to be added to their system. If your preference is to print & fill out the information, it can be mailed or faxed to any of the 3 Communication Centers on the "Contact Us" page, Attn: Angie Burnes or Barbara Archibald.
