Ansonia Aldermen on Tuesday voted to join a Prospect-based organization for handling the city’s fire and medical emergency dispatching.
The move comes as South Central CMED, the New Haven-based organization the city and other Valley towns previously contracted with to dispatch medical calls, is cutting its services in an effort to survive.
For years, CMED New Haven dispatched both the Derby fire department and ambulance service, along with ambulances in Ansonia, Shelton and the paramedics working for Valley Emergency Medical Services.

When Jeanne Iannocone gets on her homebound train from Stamford each evening, she can see a train follow closely behind hers on a parallel track.
Iannocone’s train stops in Bridgeport, everyone gets off, then she gets on the train that’s been following them from Stamford in order to continue the trek up the Waterbury branch of the Metro North train line.
Why can’t she just get on that train in the first place?!?
It’s one of the idiocies of Metro North’s Waterbury line aired at a passenger meeting Wednesday at the Derby train station.
