A new facility to house Summit County’s Regional Dispatch Center will improve emergency response times and safety in 14 communities and to more than 365,000 residents. Cuyahoga Falls, Fairlawn, Stow, and Tallmadge are joining Summit County to operate the $11.2 million center.

Located at the former Weaver building site near the Summit County fairgrounds, the repurposed building required a roof replacement, so Cardinal Roofing was called upon to provide our expertise. 

Our roofing specialists took great care to prepare the roof surface by removing dust, dirt, rust, oil, grease, and loose materials. Once the surface had been prepared, a new, fully adhered EPDM roof was installed. EPDM is a highly durable synthetic rubber roofing membrane widely used in low-slope buildings in the United States and worldwide.

Once completed, the new center will allow for quicker coordination among different communities’ safety forces, eliminate duplicative services, and reduce the chances of errors. New technology such as NextGen 911 — which will allow for text and video messages to be sent to 911 calls — will be part of the operation.
