NORCOMM – Est. 1994

NORCOMM Public Safety Communications Inc. is a proud division of Superior Ambulance Service. Founded in 1959, Superior has been both a pioneer and a leader in the fields of emergency and medical transport services for many decades.

Private 9-1-1 Services

Responding to an industry need to provide professional, cost efficient and highly effective private 9-1-1 and burglar/alarm dispatch services, NORCOMM was established in 1994. We were the first company to offer private emergency dispatch services in the state of Illinois. 

Much has changed in the world since NORCOMM first opened its doors more than 25+ years ago, but there is one thing that has not; our enduring commitment to providing an unmatched level of quality police, fire and emergency medical dispatching services to cities, towns and fire protection districts. NORCOMM also offers outstanding burglar and alarm monitoring services and equipment installation.
