Lt. Chuck Moyer checks an address while other dispatchers man the phones
inside the old fire alarm center.

When you called Portland’s 911 in the past, they transferred you to the Portland Fire
Alarm Telegraph dispatch center on NE 21st Ave near the I-84 overpass. The building
(shown below) is now the sales office for Sunshine Dairy.
