Welcome To The Regional Communications Center Houlton

The Regional Communications Center in Houlton is a state-of-the-art facility with some of the latest in communications equipment. The Houlton RCC proudly serves the people of "the County", meaning Aroostook, Maine's largest and largest county east of the Mississippi. We are responsible for receiving and relaying public safety information, instructions, and requests from and to the general public and police, fire, and rescue personnel via computer, Teletype, radio and telephone. We answer all cellular 9-1-1 calls that originate in Aroostook County. With hundreds of miles of recreational trails and a majority of the county being remote, there are times when calls become multiagency responses. We also provide Emergency Medical and Fire Dispatch information via telephone to persons requiring assistance while waiting for rescue personnel. The original Barracks was built in 1939 and was located in front of the radio tower. In 2000 new barracks was built behind the tower and is the headquarters for the Maine State Police Troop F, Houlton RCC, Major Crimes North, Maine State Police Maintenance facility, and has offices for the Maine Warden Service, Maine Forest Service, Maine Fire Marshal's Office and OIT.
