To: All 9COM-Dispatched Fire/EMS Departments

We’ve been continually evaluating and experimenting with ways to improve efficiency. Beginning October 10th, the Butler County Sheriff’s Regional Dispatch Center (9COM) will make a change that we believe will improve Fire/EMS dispatching. Effective that date, under most circumstances, the 9 ALPHA and 9 BRAVO talkgroups will be patched to one dispatcher. By doing so, the fire dispatcher will be answering telephone calls less frequently.
