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.
