The Great Plains Interagency Dispatch Center hosted an open house at its new facility Thursday, complete with a ribbon cutting.
Dispatchers moved into the new building in January, but because of the busy fire season so far, they postponed their opening ceremony until June.
The Great Plains Interagency Center was formed in June 2003 and the center coordinates with more than eight agencies throughout South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska.
Sheri Fox, the Center Manager, said their old office near the airport was crowded, but this new facility offers much more space.
"It's been working out great. We were able to design the center, now each dispatcher can see the maps, in the old center it wasn't like that. So it's just a lot more efficient," said Fox.
The new building is located on South Highway 16, next to the USDA Forest Service Mystic Ranger District Office.
