Herb Simmons
Executive Director

My years of experience in Public Safety and Public Service have been helpful in my current position in the 9-1-1 and EMA systems. The functions of these important departments go hand in hand. It is important to every citizen of St. Clair County to know that in their time of need, there are individuals that have the knowledge and training to be there for them.

Public Safety is the back bone in any community. I take pride in knowing that St. Clair County has a State of Art 9-1-1 system, and that we have highly trained employee’s to maintain that system and provide quality service to the public. My years in Fire, Police and EMS have been beneficial in managing the day-to-day operations of this complex and ever-changing system.  It is my goal as your Executive Director to move our 9-1-1 system forward.  Steps have already begun to further improve the system and to keep up with changing technologies.  My staff and I are always available to assist you.
