    The Ramsey County, Minnesota, Emergency Communications Center (RCECC) is the 76th ECC in the United States and first ECC in the state of Minnesota to implement the Automated Secure Alarm Protocol (ASAP).

    “The implementation of ASAP to PSAP within the Ramsey County Emergency Communications Center (ECC) provides employees with the means to more efficiently dispatch responders to alarm calls involving both businesses and residences within Ramsey County”, said Nancie Pass, Ramsey County Emergency Communications Director. “We are looking forward to this advancement in service to our community; increasing our ability to assist in saving lives and protecting property by decreasing the amount of time it takes to dispatch and subsequently respond to alarm calls.”
