Communications

The Communications center for Ashland Combined Dispatch consists of twelve (12) full-time dispatchers and 2 part-time dispatchers. Enhanced E-911 telephone service and WE-911 Service (Wireless 9-1-1), Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) are used by this agency to assist in efficient dispatching. The Communications Division is responsible for taking calls for service including E-911 calls from the public, other agencies and dispatching the appropriate law enforcement, fire, or medical personnel to handle various situations. This includes Ashland County Sheriff's Office, Hayesville P.D., Mifflin P.D., and Perrysville P.D., Village Fire Departments of Hayesville, Mifflin, Nankin, Jeromesville, Ruggles Troy, Savannah, Polk, and Sullivan.

Our dispatchers are trained in the Emergency Medical Dispatch whereas they can assist people who call E-911. Once the location and nature of  an emergency is determined, dispatchers will dispatch the call or transfer it to appropriate agencies. Dispatchers also follow the PowerPhone flip-chart while asking questions to determine what emergency service is needed.This is an important asset to the community.

911 Calls from the City of Ashland are answered by the Ashland County Combined Dispatch PSAP and transfered to the WARCOG Dispatch Center located in Wooster, OH.
