Steuben County endorses reclassify 9-1-1 dispatchers

News

Steuben County legislators have endorsed proposed federal legislation which would reclassify 9-1-1 dispatchers as a protective service for the community.

Currently, public safety dispatch is considered an “office and administrative support” occupation, a category that includes secretaries and taxicab dispatchers.

The change in federal classification would move emergency dispatchers to a category which includes police and firefighters.
