Worthington City Council is considering a recommendation to join the Northwest Regional Emergency Communications Center for the City’s emergency 911 dispatching services. The Northwest Center is operated by the City of Dublin, and serves Dublin, Upper Arlington, Hilliard, Washington Township and Norwich Township.
An extensive analysis was conducted by a team of City staff, including Police Chief Jerry Strait, Fire Chief John Bailot, Assistant Fire Chief Mark Zambito, Assistant City Manager Robyn Stewart, Finance Director Scott Bartter, and Personnel Director Lori Trego, who are jointly making the recommendation.
The committee determined that joining the Northwest Center would enhance the City’s emergency response, by providing a higher level of training and technology, as well as reduced response times for the growing number of people calling 911 from their cell phones. Although call taking and dispatching will take place from the Northwest Center, your Worthington firefighters, medics and police officers would still respond to your emergencies.
