The State of Vermont is seeking specific projects that address the development and implementation of Regional Dispatch/Communications Centers. Currently, the Department of Public Safety has the responsibility of providing dispatch services to a great number of emergency responders throughout the state. However, this model is not sustainable and long-envisioned regional solutions are the best way to ensure a resilient communications infrastructure with workforce being drawn from throughout the State. For this reason, limited funding will be available to support the creation of new regional dispatch centers or broaden the capacity and capability of existing dispatch centers. This will enable an approach that balances workloads in regions throughout the State.
