  • Is Saving Money More Important Than Public Safety

    To the Editor:

    Again, we see the emergency dispatch regionalization issue being reviewed.  This time by the Newtown’s Board of Fire Commissioners.  Again I urge all Newtown residents to take notice and let your voices be heard.

  • Dispatch Center Now Has Jumbo View of Newtown

    The Newtown Emergency Communications Center’s (NECC) ability to manage emergency calls for service has been enhanced with its use of a large flat-panel monitor that now hangs on the center’s eastern wall.

    NECC is located within Town Hall South, at 3 Main Street. The Center handles all local police, fire, and ambulance calls. It is the answering point for local Emergency 911 calls.

  • Dispatcher’s Work Saves A Life

    On the evening of Friday, December 21, dispatcher Sheri Citrone, along with others, were working a 12-hour shift at the Newtown Emergency Communications Center at Town Hall South.

    It was just one week after the December 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left more than two dozen people dead. The call volume at the dispatch center was high.
