The Girard firefighters union is giving the city’s 911 dispatch center a vote of “no confidence.”

The union claims the dispatch center is incapable of safely and efficiently serving the fire and emergency medical service dispatching needs for the City of Girard.

The union said it has recorded more than 500 dispatching delays and failures of notification over the last 11 years.

It wants the dispatching services moved to the Trumbull 911 dispatching center — a move the Girard police chief supports.
