The Weber Area Dispatch 911 and Emergency Services District is a 9-1-1 emergency communications center providing police, fire and medical dispatch services for all of Weber and Morgan counties. Located in Ogden, Utah, Weber Area Dispatch 911 and Emergency Services District (Weber 911) provides dispatch services to 15 law enforcement and 12 fire agencies, from a unique mix of city, county, state and federal public safety entities.
The two counties cover a total area of 1,185 square miles, with an estimated population of 217,796. The geographical area is a mix of urban and rural, with vast residential communities, a strong agricultural/farming base, as well as mountainous and waterway recreational areas.
The consolidated communications center was first developed in July 2000, through interlocal agreement with Weber County, Morgan County, all cities in both counties, and with the State of Utah. The organization was first known as Weber Area Consolidated Dispatch Center (WACDC), merging the dispatch operations of three dispatch centers previously managed by Ogden City, Roy City and the State of Utah.
In July 2005, the Weber County Commissioners, at the request of all cities in Weber County, created the dispatch organization as a special service district. That same year the citizens of Weber County voted to pass a proposition allowing the district to become a taxing entity. Weber 911 is funded in majority through property taxes and 911 telephone surcharges. The non-Weber County governmental agencies receiving dispatch services from the district became contract agencies, and pay a fee for their services.
