Village studies creation of regional emergency service dispatch system by Deborah Niemann The Huntley Farmside Huntley is joining a group of neighboring communities to study the possibility of starting a regional dispatching system for emergency services. When each community dis¬ patches its own emergency ser¬ vices, it can be costly and some¬ times inefficient, said Huntley Police Sgt. John Ciombor. If the new system is adopted, it will put several departments on the same emergency fre¬ quency, tvhich will make it easi¬ er for police and fire to call for back-up when necessary, Ciombor said. Along with Huntley, partici¬ pating departments will include Algonquin, Cary, Crystal Lake and Fox River Grove. Although the idea has been discussed for several months,. the Village Board decided last week to move forward with a study to examine the creation of the regional system. Under the current system, police officers and fire fighters have to radio the dispatcher who then has to call other departments for assistance, but under a regional system, assis¬ tance would be only a radio call away. For the past year, Huntley's emergency services have been dispatched from Lake in the Hills, and prior to that, they were dispatched by the McHenry County Sheriff's Department. Ciombor said a regional sys¬ tem would provide better equip¬ ment and better service if every¬ thing is centralized. Huntley is expected to pay about $2,400 of the $58,000 cost of the study.
