MILFORD - Milford authorities say that police and fire dispatchers are consolidating and will work together in the same room for the first time.

The $3.5 million consolidation was five years in the making.

Starting today, 911 calls will be routed to a communications center with both fire and police dispatchers. Officials believe the city will save millions of dollars by operating as a single unit. They also say that time will be saved, as there will no longer be a need to transfer calls.
