Jefferson County Fire Control
Jefferson County firefighters are dispatched from the joint city-county dispatch center located in the Public Safety Building in
Watertown. The county operates an Enhanced 9-1-1 Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) and uses CAD to dispatch
fire, ambulance, and police. The only exceptions are Fort Drum (military base) and Guilfoyle Ambulance (commercial provider for the city of Watertown and several
surrounding townships). The dispatch center is under the jurisdiction of the Jefferson County Sheriff.
Guilfoyle provides Emergency Medical Dispatch support in the form of pre-arrival instructions and level of care
determinations on all EMS calls in the county.
