When calling 911, stay on the line until the telecommunicator says it's OK to hang up. Your location is very important; even more important than the type of emergency.
Only text 911 when you can't call 911. Texts CAN be delayed. Again, the location of the emergency is very important.
Not A Emergency?
If you don't have a actual emergency, please call our administration number at 304-659-3770. or you can call the agency to whom you wish to talk with directly. .

Doddridge and Ritchie Counties are nestled in the heart of North Central West Virginia. Although they are among the lowest populated Counties in the State, U.S. Route 50 runs the width of both Counties, serving as a major link in the
region's commerce and travel. The major industries in our Counties are timber production, oil and gas
production, manufacturing, farming and tourism.
