    On the radio we are called "Fire Alarm"
    On taped phone lines we are called "Sir or Mam"
    On un-taped phone lines... well, use your imagination

    Here in Boulder County Colorado we either call dispatch

    "communications"
    "Boulder communications"
    "1800"

    1800 is the communications center ID on the Boulder County radio identification list. Though each dispatcher has there own two digit ending (18XX) when generally calling communicatios we say 1800 to call whoever is in charge of fire communications.

    Putnam County NY has just opened it's new 911 Center which will be the Fire & EMS Control Center for the county. when we were at the Putnam Sheriffs Department we were known as 40-Control because Putnam is County 40 in NYS. With the new center we will now be known as Putnam 911

    The Center is Called Fire Communicatios Center or FCC. All transmissions from the field would be "Engine16 to Radio, or Medic 2 to Radio." Replying to a unit would be "Proceed Engine16 etc. Dispatchers have an ID but it is never used on the Radio only when answering the Phone whether 911 or Firephones. The Police call the FCC "Fireboard."

    Fire Communications is known as KEH912 or 912 EMS Communications is County Control, KUQ874 or Ulster 911.

    For our Police Polling frequency we are just known simply as "County"


    Where I live further upstate in the Albany area, their communications is just "Dispatcher" EMS in one town is known as "MEDCOM".

    Since we are a county wide combined communications center for 18 different agencies, we are called several things....

    For the City Police we are "headquarters"

    For County Sheriff we are "County"

    For the campus police we are "Comm.Center"

    For just about everyone else we are "emergency center" or just "Comm.Center" (its shorter) It all happens in the same room and we are all right next to each other but depending on where you are sitting determines what you call yourself.
    Pretty confusing to the outsider but there is a method to the madness!

    Ours here is Elk County Control. "Ambulance 221 to Elk County Control."
    I used to say that when I became 80 years old, I wanted DNR to be tattooed on my forehead. But now I changed my mind. You see, I want one last ride in an ambulance, one last code with the boys, and I want to let a rookie get a tube in.

    Default just plain central.

    EMS- "central"
    Police- "central"
    County Vol Fire- "central"
    City Fire Dept- "central"

    Now that is simple.


    you hear the occational "dispatch".
    When they don't answer after a couple of attempts, you might hear, " XXXX to Lowndes 911 "

    Central from "358",Central Dispatch,McCracken Dispatch,or "HEY YOU GUYS!"
    We have five county departments.Equipment and member numbers start with the department number and member numbers are three digit.
    Since there are ten possible numbers for equipment and all units are getting more than ten rigs to use,we are starting to come up with three digit unit numbers.
    My department adds to this by using the 300 moniker when we are making a general announcement to our specific department:"35 to 300-35 is back in quarters and available for calls".
    I haven't heard any other department do the back in station calls but they do call when clear of the scene.

    Our Fire, Ems, and Rescue dispatch is refered to as EOC (Emergency Operations Center). The po-po have their own for each agency, and don't want to play with us. Which say something for the way we get along too.
