The current system hasnt been updated in over 15 years. Fire chief Josh Eberle said that there are too many steps to take to respond to a call. This effects efficiency and can tie up dispatch lines. Schmelzer said he has been working on finding deals for different systems.

Some of the deals are under a time constraint. Schmelzer asked the appropriations committee to recommend approving $725,000 for a new system. The committee unanimously voted to recommend appropriating the money.
