It is the mission of the Walton County 911 Center to serve the members of our community effectively and to the best of our ability. It is our responsibility to provide emergency and non-emergency medical, fire, and law enforcement response, as well as acting as the hub of communications for all of Walton County. The community relies on us to disseminate all information to the proper authority in both emergency and non-emergency situations in a timely manner to help preserve life and property.
The law, introduced by Rep. Mike Cheokas, is named for Logan Stuart, 18, who is severely autistic and has additional special needs. The law, which will go into effect July 1, creates a voluntary database of special needs residents that can be accessed by first responders when responding to calls.
