Is Heartland now using automated dispatching as well because I am now hearing a robot dispatching does anyone know if they are doing that permanently or testing it out?

It's a different robot voice than everyone else...someone needs to program the space bar into it's channel readouts.

Something ELSE about the computer voice dispatching..
A unit came up on 1C, and asked for a BLS unit to respond.
In less than 10 seconds, the dispatch was going out on 1A.

THAT is a game changer! Now, if San Diego Fire could be that fast!!

What do you mean? That The SDFD auto dispatch is delayed? It takes 7 seconds from the time a resource is assigned until the voice goes out unless it goes in queue. That said for Metro BLS and ALS units are not voiced unless that are dispatched simultaneously with a fire unit. Exception is Poway.

I have heard PD request something (Medics, or engines for a fire) and had it take 4 minutes to even 7-8 minutes before the dispatch came over the radio.
