Letter To The Editor: Personal Issues with Regional Dispatch


To the Editor,

I am a former resident of Manchester having grown up and graduating from Manchester Jr-Sr High. I had the unfortunate experience of the regional dispatch here in Methuen where I now reside. My wife needed to be transported to the hospital. After calling 911, I was routed to the regional dispatch center. I was then routed to the local dispatch center for police and fire here in Methuen. Luckily my wife was not in a critical condition as precious minutes were wasted in transfer of the call to the local dispatch. I would advise the residents to vote no on the dispatch question. And keep the dispatch local.

John Rowley
