Chittenden County Public Safety Authority PSA 2018-02-14

Chittenden County Public Safety Authority Ballot Question PSA -- At Town Meeting this year, voters in many communities will be asked whether to form the Chittenden County Public Safety Authority, a new union municipal district to provide regional emergency dispatch services. The Public Safety Authority would serve as the central hub to dispatch police, fire and rescue personnel for the communities it serves, and take on the role as the region’s 911 call answering center. If this new entity is created, select boards and city councils will decide locally whether their communities will use it to provide dispatch services. This public service announcement summarizes the ballot question. Featuring: Williston Fire Chief Ken Morton, Burlington Fire Chief Steve Locke, South Burlington Police Chief Trevor Whipple, South Burlington Fire Chief Doug Brent, Colchester Rescue Services Chief Amy Akerlind, Shelburne Town Manager Aaron Frank. Produced with Eric Well, Williston's Assistant Town Manager on behalf of the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission.
