As new public safety dispatchers
are hired, former fire and police dispatchers will cross train in order to be
able to answer and process all types of calls coming into the consolidated
public safety communications center.
The communications center is scheduled for
additional remodeling in late 2016 to include updating the kitchen facilities to
accommodate the increased staff, converting existing space into a training
room, and converting the former fire communications center into a conference
room and a quiet room where dispatchers can take breaks during long shifts or
after handling difficult calls.
