We 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 (WVIRP). With the first police and EMS units in the state fully switched to the trunked radio system.
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.
