Aroostook County commissioners unanimously approved nine dispatch contract agreements with communities and organizations throughout the region during a Feb. 21 meeting. All contracts increased by five percent, according to Sheriff Peter Johnson. All of the approved contracts were renewed from last year. No new communities or organizations were added. As part of these agreements, calls made to these towns and organizations will go to the sheriff office’s dispatch center, based in Houlton. For fire calls, dispatchers will activate the town or organization’s fire paging system to communicate the location of the fire. Commissioners approved a $2,551.35 annual ambulance dispatching contract for Central Aroostook Ambulance Service, and a $29,291.22 contract for Southern Aroostook Emergency Medical Services.
