While sifting through all those pesky grocery store adds in my mailbox I came across an interesting article in the Littleton Report:

LFR dispatch joins regional group

LFR has joined South Metro, West Metro and the Evergreen Fire Protection District in pursuing a consolidated regional Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system. The partners represent more than 750,000 people across three counties and 21 cities. The result will be one of the largest regional CAD systems in Colorado. Staffing will remain within each agency. The consolidation of the dispatch systems should result in substantial equipment and maintenance cost savings for each of the entities.
Think we will hear Mr. & Mrs. Lola on the LFR & Evergreen channels in the near future?

Littleton : News & Announcements : CAD Consolidation Planned for Area Dispatch Centers
South Metro is using First In's AVD (Automatic Voice Dispatch) and West Metro is using Locution. Thus far Littleton has not expressed interest in the AVD product so it probably won't happen anytime soon. Each dispatch center can use whatever station alerting system they'd like while sharing the CAD platform.

Thanks for the update Eric. Bet this will cut-down on all the comms we hear over MetroNet between LFR and Metcom.

You're exactly right. The new CAD should be operational with all agencies on board by October. When that happens all the incident information will be shared on CAD & MDT's so there really will be no need to talk on MetroNet.
