Introduction
Lakes Region Mutual Fire Aid Association, provides uninterrupted emergency dispatch communications for the fire and EMS departments of the Lakes Region in Central New Hampshire. The association has proudly provided these services 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, to the ever-growing population in our 1,500 square mile service area since 1950.

We are a premier organization consisting of 35 communities, the Central NH Hazardous Materials Response Team, and 2 Water Extrication Teams.

The Communications Center is staffed by motivated, highly-trained, and skilled Communications Specialists. They have been trained to operate at emergency scenes as Incident Dispatchers as well as cross-trained with Concord Fire Alarm as part of our Operations Continuity Plan. They provide the vital first-link between citizens and the towns' resources. Their performance contributes directly to the safety and well-being of the Departments' members and towns' residents.

As we move into the 21st century with a  state of the art communications center, our vision is to expand our capabilities while still providing quality service to the ever-growing population in the Lakes Region, utilizing the latest technologies in radio communications and interoperability, computer-aided dispatching, and GIS information systems.

The Communications Center is equipped with Orbicom touch-screen dispatching consoles that control 10 transmit-and-receive radio sites. We provide fire and EMS alerting for 35 agencies and our system can easily be expanded to accommodate more agencies. The Center currently operates with Cross Current dispatching CAD software, which provides dispatching information, incident reporting, preplans, water supply sources, run cards, inventory information, and other fire and EMS modules.
