The St. Joseph County Fire Dispatch Center has become the 27th Accredited Emergency Fire Dispatch Center in the world through the International Academies Of Emergency Dispatch's Accredited Center of Excellence (ACE) program.
We are the first 911 Dispatch Center in the State of Indiana to achieve status as an Accredited Fire Dispatch Center.
We proudly earned our Accredited Status in Emergency Medical Dispatch in 2012. Therefore, the St. Joseph County Fire Dispatch Center is now known as a "Duel ACE" from the International Academies of Emergency Dispatch (IAED), achieving Accredited Status in both Emergency Medical Dispatching and Emergency Fire Dispatching.
The St. Joseph County Fire Dispatch Center has achieved this high honor after a thorough review of policies, procedures, performance and quality control by the Academy. The criteria establishes a baseline based on a highly responsive and quality dispatch system that citizens of St. Joseph County have come to expect when they are summoning help during a fire or medical emergency.
