I think we will start to see a lot more of consolidated dispatches, such as SERESA and pretty soon Shelby Township,Clinton Township, and Sterling Heights of Macomb County as mentioned in one of my posts.

"One city dispatcher who's retiring is worried about a brain drain". I wonder what that means.

I'm surprised more agencies are not consolidating.

Hamilton County, Ohio (Cincinnati) has had a consolidated communications center since 1949.

They dispatch for over 100 different police and fire agencies in 42 political jurisdictions serving over 500,000 Hamilton County residents.
