    Here in New South Wales, Australia in my career station we use "Sydney Comms" as our dispatch as it is a fire communictions centre for all of the career and paid on call fire stations in the greater Sydney area. Out were I live and volunteer it is "Firecom" for my rural fire district's fire communications and control centre.

    For the city police we are called--"Headquarters"
    For the Sheriff's Dept. we are called --"County"
    For everyone else, we are called--"Comm.Center"

    We dispatch for all law enforcement, fire and EMS in the county. Works out to be 14 different agencies.

    Here in La Crosse, WI (God's Country) we're "Dispatch" to law enforcement and most volunteer FDs. To La Crosse FD and our local ambulance service, we're "EDC," for (obviously) Emergency Dispatch Center.

    I don't know what they all call us OFF the air, though.
