    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.

    "Fire Alarm" is common in my area, at least.

    Since regionalized communication centers are still largely a foreign concept in my area, each fire department pretty much has its own dispatch center. It's a toss-up between "Fire Alarm", name of town, name of town + Fire Alarm.

    or as brought up, "TONY, IS THAT A RIGHT HAND TURN OR A LEFT?"

    God Bless America!Remember all have given some, but some have given all.

    "Fire Dispatch"

    Some of the less crusty folk call it just "Dispatch"

    Some of the rural folks who still haven't gotten used to us dispatching them (starting in 1996/1997) insist on "Calgary Fire Dispatch".

    All 5 departments in our parish (that's "county" for all you outside Louisiana, which I guess is most of ya )are dispatched by the Sheriff's Office dispatcher. They are located in the parish seat, Napoleonville, so they are called "Napoleonville Dispatch" or sometimes just "Napoleonville". And yeah, we sometimes revert to calling by name..."Wanda, what's that address again?"

My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    in melbourne, victoria (australia) there is the MFB (inner urban) and CFA (suburban and rural) brigades, both run from the same comms centre. the centre is known as 'VKN-8' to MFB appliances and as 'VicFire' for CFA ..only problem is they turnout together in fringe areas and it can get confusing because the order in which you say things varies because they are different services. eg:
    "VKN-8 to Pumper-Tanker 34, message" or "Rosebud Pumper, VicFire message"
