By distributing wireless 911 surcharge funds back to the local jurisdictions and assisting those jurisdictions with E-911 mapping, our goal is to help local E-911 centers provide the highest quality emergency E-911 service to all citizens and visitors of the state of South Carolina.
The Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office has responsibility for managing the wireless E-911 program under Title 23 Chapter 47 of the S.C. Code of Laws. Our program provides assistance to 50 local jurisdictions’ Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), which include all 46 counties and the 4 municipalities of Clemson City, Goose Creek, Summerville, and Hanahan. With the advice of the SC Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) Advisory Committee, the office disburses funds and reimbursements to local 911 centers for costs related to wireless services. Our office also provides Geographic Information Sytems (GIS) services to the PSAPs by constructing, mapping, and correcting road centerline and address structure files used in the 911 system.
