The Metropolitan Emergency Services Board

The Metropolitan Emergency Services Board (MESB) supports public safety for the residents of Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott and Washington Counties, and the City of Minneapolis.


This support includes:

Oversight and management of the regional public safety radio system (Metro ARMER System);

Oversight and management of the regional 9-1-1 system;

Coordination of the regional EMS system.

This coordinated, regional approach to support Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs), radio system users, and EMS providers ensures the best response to emergencies for the Metro Region residents.
