Girard fire union votes no confidence for city's 911 dispatch center
Members of the Girard Professional Firefighters Association IAFF Local 1220 cast a unanimous vote of no confidence in regard to the city's 911 dispatch center.
According to a release from the union, the vote reflects its ongoing dissatisfaction and concern with the dispatch center and claim it's "incapable of safely and efficiently serving the fire and emergency medical service dispatching needs of the residents of Girard and the fire department."
They say the vote is in response to the "recent failures" of the dispatch center and that they have recorded more than 500 dispatching delays and failures of notification over the last eleven years.
The union wants the dispatching services moved to the Trumbull County 911 Center.
