Marion County Central Communications (911) would like to welcome you to our webpage to view the services and history of Marion County Central Communications.
Marion County Central Communications has become a progressive leader in communications initiatives in the state of West Virginia. Marion County was one of the three founding partners of the West Virginia Interoperable Radio System. With first police and EMS units in the state fully switched to the trunked radio system.
We have moved into our new location with state-of-the-art equipment. The new facility has positions for six dispatchers and up to four call talker positions for disasters. The new addition of Automatic Vehicle Locations (AVL) and other computer systems have increased the safety and response of responders.
The Marion County 911 Center was established in 1977 under the name of Marion County Fire Rescue. The dispatch center was located in the basement of the Marion County Rescue Squad. The Center dispatched for Fire and EMS. The Communication Center was moved in 1987 to 903 State Street on the East Side of Fairmont and the name changed to Marion County Central Communications. Then in 2009, Marion County Central Communications moved to its new home at 50 Centerview Drive.
Marion County 911 currently dispatches 14 fire companies, 6 EMS stations, and 9 police agencies, including Marion County Sheriff’s Department, Fairmont Police Department, and West Virginia Department of Natural Resources. Marion County 911 is currently staffed with 25 full-time employees and 2 part-time employees.
