SARATOGA SPRINGS — On Friday, March 10, Chief Robert Williams (second from left in photo) and other city officials gathered to honor Public Safety Dispatcher Joe Decrosta, who retired.

Decrosta started with the Saratoga Springs Fire Department as a dispatcher in 1987. When city communications were consolidated into the Police Department he went from the firehouse to the police station.

 

Decrosta made the transition from Fire Dispatcher to Public Safety Dispatcher with ease and became an irreplaceable part of the Public Safety system, according to Peter Shaw, Assistant Chief of the Fire Department (at left).
