Christian County 911 will be testing wireline numbers in the Shelby County area from Monday, May 22 through Friday, May 26th between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.


These tests will determine network accuracy and location detail for each wireline phone prefix within Shelby County. This procedure is required to make a successful test with a minimum of 10% of the wireline numbers. A public safety telecommunicator will make a call to the number and ask that a return call is made using a test code. This will replicate a 911 call enabling a verification of data.


On July 3, Christian County 911 will begin providing enhanced 911 services for the Shelby County area, including calls for wireline, wireless and VoIP.


If you have any questions or comments, please contact Mickie Ehrhardt, Christian County 911 Administrator at (217) 287-7911.


The Christian-Shelby Joint Emergency Telephone System Board meets on the 2nd Monday of each Month at 5:30 p.m. at the Pana Police Department, Pana, IL. The public is welcome to attend.
