Weathersfield emergency services move to county dispatch

Posted: Updated:

WEATHERSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Emergency calls for Weathersfield police and fire departments are now handled by county dispatchers at the Howland dispatch center.

The switch took effect Monday at 7 a.m. The switch affected nearly 10,000 people who live and work in Weathersfield Township.

The Weathersfield emergency services left the county operations in February 2006 to join a newly-established Niles dispatch center and have used that service since.

Supervisor Daniel Hahne said that everything was running smoothly so far.

"It's just about getting comfortable again." Hahne said. 

A newly completed communications tower meant to service both Weathersfield and Niles will be in operation starting July 21.
