Emergency Communication Center

Paxton is part of the Wachusett Regional Emergency Communications Center (WRECC) which services Holden, Paxton, Princeton, and West Boylston.

The Emergency Communications Center plays a vital part in the operation of emergency services. Most calls for service come through the Center include - motor vehicle accidents, structure fires, medical emergencies, domestic disputes, etc. - and it is the role of the Dispatcher to obtain critical information. The information gathered assists responding units in "painting a picture" of what it is they're about to encounter.

The Dispatchers also handle many non-emergency requests for service, too - brush permits, animal control issues, vacant house notices, requests for service from the Highway and Light Departments after regular business hours, etc.
