Emergency Communications Center

Designing Emergency Communications Centers that individuals can have complete confidence in.

During an emergency, citizens need confidence in their communication with 911 operators to ensure they can receive the emergency services they need. To assist in this confidence, our team has the experience and knowledge necessary to design an emergency communications center that individuals will have complete confidence in. Through designs focused around continuity of operations, healthy work environments and other industry trends, we strive to provide spaces that assist in a wide variety of community needs.

Emergency Communication Center Design

Continuity of Operations

Emergency communications centers must be equipped to survive various risks to ensure individuals can reach 911 during an emergency. We know how to design dependable structures equipped to handle unique situations through our years of experience with centers. When the rest of the community is down during a natural disaster, you can have the confidence that a center designed by our team will continue to operate during emergencies, allowing your team to focus on responding to help community members. With the amount of technology in a center, we also ensure that systems supporting 911 operations are supported by robust mechanical and electrical systems to keep them powered and cooled. Our first step is to create a risk analysis and mitigation plan with clients to understand your needs and match those needs with your goals.

Promoting a Healthy Work Environment

Being responsible for the communication between citizens in an emergency and the dispatch to responders can be an extremely stressful duty. The stress associated with daily tasks can often lead to high staff turnover in an emergency communications center. Because of this, a need has arisen to create environments that assist in easing stress for personnel. Our team is committed to creating spaces that promote a healthy work environment, including an increase in natural light, tall volume spaces for acoustics, and an inspiring design that motivates staff. Finally, we also assist in guiding centers in the direction of ergonomic furniture for personnel. These features are included in a secure facility design that provides additional security measures for you and your staff.

Emergency Operations Centers

One similar building type that our team has experience in is emergency operations centers (EOC). A slightly different approach, EOC's serve as a central command and control for emergencies.

As one of the most technologically dependent and expensive building types in the government sector, we believe it is necessary for you to work with architects and engineers who know the building type's intricacies. As a leader in emergency communications center design, we have a vast amount of experience to assist you. We believe that emergency communications centers are the established lifeline for citizens to receive emergency assistance and should be designed to operate at all times. On top of being a facility that emphasizes continuity of operations, we also believe centers should promote a positive work environment. With these and other considerations in mind, we create emergency communication center designs that become a valued investment that will stand the test of time.
