The Safety Forces of Bedford, Bedford Heights and Maple Heights are in the early stages of implementing a regional dispatch center. This regional center would replace each city's existing center and handle the dispatching for the fire and police departments of all three communities. By combining the three centers each community will ultimately save money while being able to provide a more efficient service to the citizens.
The proposed site of the dispatch center is located within Bedford Medical Center. The project has already been awarded a $900,000 grant from the Federal Government.
Check back for updates on the project.
