Congratulations to Part time Dispatcher Tom Ball (Dispatcher 19) and Part time Dispatcher Ashton Nyre (Dispatcher 20) for 1 year of dedicated service to Fire Mutual Aid.
Listen to the mayday radio transmissions from the 3 alarm fire in Boston this morning. Hopefully it will never happen in our dispatch area. If it does, the dispatchers at Fire Mutual Aid have specific procedures to follow.
