What is a PSAP?

The South Shore Regional Emergency Communications Center (SSRECC) is the primary Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for the Cohasset, Hingham, Hull and Norwell fire and police departments. Our Communication Specialists receive 9-1-1 calls and dispatch an emergency response, including police, fire and emergency medical services.

Emergency Medical Dispatch

Emergency medical dispatch (EMD) is a systematic program of handling medical calls for assistance. Our Communication Specialists are trained on locally approved EMD guide-cards to quickly and properly determine the nature and priority of the call, dispatch the appropriate response and give the caller instructions to help treat the patient until the responding EMS unit arrives.
