I had read something about that last November or December and thought I would have heard more on the subject by now. Anyways here is a link to a short story on what I think you are talking about.

Thanks moonbounce, that is the story I read but had forgotten where, so it looks like a change will happen sometime this year.

Strathroy will start dispatching some departments in March, with the others to follow after that. I haven't seen a schedule or anything of that sort laying out a timeline though.

....also, just in case anyone is wondering... There will be no frequency or channel changes of any sort. County Tac 1 thru 3 will still have the same roles and frequencies as they do now, the only change being that Strathroy will be dispatching vs London.

Looks like March 31 is the go live date for SCPS to take over.

Thanks for the update Forts. Will the reception from London be any worse coming from Strathroy?

Strathroy is doing pager tests tonight instead of London... So it looks like they are running the show now.

Yes as of today they have officially taken over. Not so bad today, much better than last week. I'm sure once they get a few weeks under their belts it'll be OK.

I did hear her slip once, and say Strathroy. I wonder if that will be changed to Strathroy, one of these days.
