    Seems like the Essex County Regional Dispatch Center is havjng some problem. The towns of Essex and Wenham both police and fire have been there since July. But the town of Middleton has been there less then a month and the fire department has taken the dispatch back over for now sighting safety concerns with the center. Specifically many calls that have been improperly dispatched.

    Probably not sending enough ladder trucks to the MVA's they respond too, making traffic still passable.

    If you can't fly under one banner it doesn't work.

    PSAP regionalization does work....but it takes cooperation, planning and most of all training!!

    Seems nowadays new dispatch trainees just want to come to work, collect a paycheck, surf the information superhighway, post on social media and rely on veteran co workers who have put in numerous hours training and dedication to get them through their workday. New hires just don't seem to put any effort in. IMHO for whatever that may be worth..........

    Another part of the issue is that many if not most of the departments in this state put dispatch training in the budget somewhere below coffee creamers and filters. I've been denied training more than I've been approved and several times I've had to pay out of pocket to go to training I thought was important. I know the LEO's out there go through the same thing and are equally as frustrated.

    The list of issues this is going to cause should be long and distinguished.
