dispatch

Cincinnati Fire dispatchers are now sending crews to emergencies based on their actual real-time physical location  instead of where their fire houses are located.

This real-time GPS vehicle location dispatch has been used by other departments, including Toledo and Columbus, for years, but is new to Cincinnati, the first in Hamilton County to use it beginning this past January.

More then 100 angry property owners called the Kenton County tax office today, upset about an new fee on their bill. The Judge Executive scheduled a news conference to clear up any confusion.
