GREENE CO., Ohio (WDTN) - Three communities are all onboard with a new plan for helping you during an emergency.
The City of Bellbrook and Sugarcreek Township both signed off to consolidate 911 services at one dispatch center in Xenia.
The deal took a year to hammer out, but September 15 is now the date for the new dispatch center to begin operations.
The move is designed to save money in light of recent state funding cuts.
The contractual service agreement calls for Xenia's Central Communication Center to handle all 911 calls for all three communities.
Xenia is expanding its dispatch center as a result with new radio equipment and other technology.
All three communities are now working to make a smooth transition.
