OROVILLE, Calif. — When you have a car crash, a fire, a fall or another emergency in the city, your call for help will be answered by a dispatcher at the Oroville Police Department.
The new combined Oroville police and fire dispatch station began fielding calls at 7 a.m. Tuesday, and Oroville Police Chief Bill LaGrone said the transition has gone smoothly.
