Fire dispatch pilot program launched

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

The benefit for other agencies includes extensive cross training for county dispatchers, according to Hamilton. The program will provide training so that when the new E911 Center opens, the dispatchers will be prepared for any situation on day one, she said. Other area fire departments will be supporting the pilot program and reviewing reports during the E911 Trust Authority meetings. The program will allow all the groups involved to weigh in on possible changes or improvements that may be needed. Initially, the pilot program will begin during the day shift, however it could transition into the evening hours. The public will see no change in service, during the program as the Verdigris Fire Department will maintain consistent staff levels during the process.
