911 EMS Calls Dispatched Directly by Allegheny County EMS Beginning January 2024

Beginning in early January, Tri-Community South (TCS) EMS, which handles medical emergencies and serves Bethel Park, South Park and Upper St. Clair, will now be dispatched directly by Allegheny County 911. Allegheny County 911 will take all emergency calls and directly dispatch TCS EMS. In addition, TCS EMS will operate jointly on a shared channel with our adjoining mutual aid services providing enhanced engagement with our neighboring response agencies. As in the past, the Upper St. Clair Dispatch Center will continue to operate as a ringdown center and will receive and dispatch police and fire while maintaining the personal point of contact at the Municipal Building for its residents.

Allegheny County 911 will simultaneously transfer the call to the Upper St. Clair Dispatch Center, which will send any necessary support services, including police and/or fire. This revised dispatching should be seamless and allow for improved operations. The caller for emergency services will not notice any difference in call taking and dispatching.

For all other emergency or non-emergency services, residents may still dial 412-833-7500, which will send you to Upper St. Clair Dispatch Center. Whether you call 911 or 412-833-7500, you will still get an emergency dispatcher rendering services you need in a timely manner.

Emergency: 911 or 412-833-7500 (USC Police Dispatch)
