Cleveland, OH – The Chagrin Valley Dispatch Center, a state-of-the-art emergency dispatching agency that serves 12 municipalities within the Chagrin Valley area, recently won the National 9-1-1 Leadership Award from the Association of Public Safety Communication Officials.

To initiate, coordinate, and dispatch first responders, Chagrin Valley Dispatch certified staff members use advanced communication systems. The 9-1-1 system is used by all of Cuyahoga County, which was built with room for expansion to include contiguous counties.

Congratulations to the Chagrin Valley Dispatch Center on winning the 9-1-1 Leadership Award,” said Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish. “We are proud of the work our dispatch centers are doing across the County. Government that gets results is a core strategy in all that we do. Centralization and collaboration of services and the leveraged benefit of upgraded services has allowed us to offer more, for less. We are proud of the work our dispatch centers are doing across the county.”

Chagrin Valley Dispatch prides itself on ensuring safe and effective emergency services are available to all residents of Cuyahoga County when they need it.

“We owe a debt of gratitude to Lt. Nick DiCicco, who had the vision to conceive and create the center,” said Kathy Mulcahy, Mayor of Orange Village. “We are very proud of the first class safety service this provides to our residents.” “

We are so proud to work with the people like Lt. DiCicco, who have incredible vision and technical ability,”
said Moreland Hills Mayor Susan Renda. “We are where we are today because of his leadership.”
