CLIENT GOALS

Located in the basement of the 1954 courthouse, the Crawford County regional 911 center and local fire / police dispatch center had serious limitations.  Several studies had been performed with multiple solutions proposed, all of which offered unacceptable compromises. 

SOLUTIONS

When the renovation of an existing industrial building for county functions was abandoned, the decision was made to utilize a portion of the site for a new stand-alone 911 and emergency operations center.  The design was to provide a high level of security for these essential services including redundancy for most operating systems. The new facility had to house all of Crawford County's emergency services including emergency management, the coroner's office, and several other agencies.  

RESULTS

The project was bid using an integrated delivery strategy to local trade contractors and accomplished within a time frame that allowed the centers to be moved with minimal service disruption prior to the occupancy of the new Judicial Center.  "Before, we did not have the capabilities of having an emergency operations center and now we do," said Crawford County Public Safety Director Kevin Nicholson.  "A facility like this has been needed for many years."
