About US

Serving over 30 public safety agencies in Grant County, MACC is a civilian staffed E9-1-1 Dispatch Center located in Central Washington State.

Governance

Through an Interlocal Agreement created in 1995 with Grant County, the cities and towns in Grant County, as well as the County Fire Districts, and EMS Districts, MACC's services, including 9-1-1 Dispatching operations and Administrative Services, are governed by a Policy Board comprised of seven board members.
The MACC Policy Board has the authority and responsibility to provide policy and legislative direction for MACC. The Board appoints and supervises the Director, approves the final annual budget of the Agency, determines what services the Agency will offer, reviews and adopts personnel, purchasing, and financial policies, and acts as necessary to further MACC's goals and purposes.
The Board of Directors receives input from the Agency Director and Staff. There are three standing committees formed under the authority of the MACC Bylaws. They are the

* LAW Technical Advisory Committee (LAW TAC)
* Fire Technical Advisory Committee (FIRE TAC)
* Emergency Medical Services Technical Advisory Committee (EMS TAC)


The Technical Advisory Committees represent the needs of the Agencies they represent and provide recommendations and issues to the Board of Directors for consideration.
