It is no exaggeration to say that without dispatchers, the entire system would be unable to function properly.

For the past seven years, it has seemed like stagnant or falling municipal budgets are the norm. The recession caused tax revenues to fall significantly on both the state and local level, forcing governments to cut back wherever possible — especially with already stressed voters reluctant to accept additional tax increases.
