Why can't the two dispatch combine. Why transfer calls from one agency to another to slow emergency response. Plus it is cost effective to combine agencys and save the tax payers money. With technology advancing with enhanced 911 it provides a valuable lifesaving service to the citizens. Oakisland needs to change the liberal spending policies that started years ago.
