Lincoln County has a unique geography encompassing over 4000 square miles; therefore, the Lincoln County Emergency Communications Center is divided into two offices located respectively in Afton and Kemmerer. Both offices are staffed with a dispatcher 24 hours a day. Dispatchers not only answer both emergency and non-emergency calls, dispatching law enforcement officers, EMS, fire, and search and rescue personnel to calls from both residents and visitors in Lincoln County. The Communications Center is also the liaison for Wyoming Highway Patrol for incidents on the local highways and provides assistance when requested. In case of emergency, dial 911. To reach the LCSO Kemmerer Communication Center for non-emergency services, dial (307) 877-3971, option 4.
