Internship
Roanoke County ECC offers an unpaid internship opportunity to high school seniors and college students interested in pursuing a career in emergency services. We hope that our interns gain a realistic view of our daily operations. All interested students must complete and submit an application to be considered for an internship with Roanoke County ECC. All interns will undergo a criminal background check prior to acceptance into our internship program. Any interns under 18 years of age must have written permission from a legal guardian to participate in our internship program.

Next Generation 911
Next Generation 911 looks to meet the challenges of our increasing global connectivity and communications mobility. NextGen911 or NG9-1-1 standards were reviewed in January 2014, after initially being released in September 2011. The NG9-1-1 standards and best practices help 911 centers seamlessly transition into the digital age. Currently, several 911 centers in the United States are conducting test trials with receiving text messages, video clips, photos, and voice information. For more information, please visit our Next Generation 911 page.

Roanoke County ECC may not offer Text to 911 with your cell phone carrier. Call 911 if you can safely do so.
