Emergency Services – Kennesaw/Acworth 911 Center
The Kennesaw/Acworth 911 Center handles all emergency calls for the cities of Acworth and Kennesaw, providing the vital communications link between residents of both cities and emergency services in Acworth, Kennesaw and Cobb County. Located at Kennesaw City Hall, the 911 Center operates 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. It became self-sufficient in 2006 and operates using no dollars from the City’s general fund.
The 911 Center also oversees the “Are You OK?” program, which telephones elderly citizens on a daily basis who subscribe to this free service. Communications personnel call the elderly person at a preset time and if the call is not answered, they will call again. If no answer is received on the second call, communications personnel contact the individuals listed on the subscriber application as emergency contacts to determine if the subscriber is supposed to be at home or not. The subscriber notifies the communications center in advance if they are not going to be home on a certain day and is placed on a no call list until the subscriber returns home.
