We also dispatch via mutual agreements for agencies such as the Kentucky State Police, Park Rangers, Fish and Wildlife, etc. when they are assisting in-county, and numerous other agencies, including call outs for the Road Department, State Highway Department, Multiple Utility Companies, Air Medical, Refuse Department, etc.Our annual call volume between public admin, internal office and 911 call volume is over 100,000.
