The proposed merger between the Pettis County Ambulance District and the Sedalia Police Department’s dispatched services is nearing completion, after the PCAD Board of Directors heard an update on the project during a January 20 work session.
SPD Cmdr. Matt Wirt told the board dispatchers would be ready go to live at 8 a.m., February 2. PCAD announced last fall that it would change to using SPD services from its current Morgan County dispatchers to help shorten response time and streamline emergency services in the area. Wirt, PCAD Administrator Mike Gardner, and other area emergency services personnel have been working extensively on the project to ensure a smooth transition.
