History of the RED Center

On May 30, 1986, Jackson Township Trustees proposed a communications dispatch center to be started to help lower the budgets of safety forces in Stark County. The goal was to create a combined central dispatch center to improve communications and increase staffing in the field. This proposal was made before 9-1-1 became available in Stark County.

RED Center serves Western Stark County and approximately 150,000 residents. RED Center currently employs 15 full time dispatchers, five part time dispatchers, an Assistant Director, and Executive Director.
