KFD expanding dispatch

The Kelowna Fire Department is expanding its regional dispatch service.

City council Monday approved a contract to provide the service to the Regional District of Central Kootenay.

The fire department now provides dispatch service to regional district of Okanagan Similkameen, East Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary.

Fire Chief Travis Whiting says the contract should create revenue of about $374,000 over the life of the agreement.

"This is an extension of our dispatch services to provide dispatch service and record management service," said Whiting.

Whiting says the deal will kept to capitalize on capacity within Kelowna dispatch centre, and offset costs of maintaining the centre to appropriate standards.
