Southside Fire Station #1 has been turned into the new dispatch center for EMS since the acquisition of MedStar. This is to be a temporary location while a new center is built somewhere on Dean Forest Rd. This station happens to be where we have our Coastal Amateur Radio Society radio station and antenna tower. It's also a location where we have many radio events including our annual Field Day. The addition of the dispatch center required the installation of a new antenna tower for the department. Here are some pictures that I took this week.
