Description

Connecticut Public Safety Answering Points is a point feature-based layer representing the physical locations of Connecticut's 107 primary Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs). Locations were first determined by geocoding the addresses supplied by each PSAP to the Office of Statewide Emergency Telecommunications (OSET) and then moved on top PSAP building using aerial imagery at a scale of 1:1000.PSAPs are the facilities operated on a twenty-four hour basis, which are for receiving 9-1-1 calls and dispatching emergency response services, or transferring or relaying 9-1-1 calls to other public safety agencies. Emergency response services include police, fire and emergency medical services. The PSAP is the first point of reception of a 9-1-1 call.Connecticut has four types of PSAPs: Municipal (covers one municipality), Multi-Town (covers two muncipalities), Regional (covers at least three municipalities), or State Police (covers certain highways and roads).
