Emergency center could shift to Fairfield Fire Department

By From page A3 | March 16, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A part of the Fire Department’s administration building would become the location for the city’s Emergency Operations Center under a $185,000 plan that shifts the center from its temporary site in the Police Department briefing room.

The proposal goes before the Fairfield City Council when it meets Tuesday.

Operations and drills have been hindered by the temporary setting at the Police Department, a city staff report states. Communications equipment has been stored in a closet next to the briefing room.

The open area in the Fire Department where the operations centers would be located was originally built for public events. Computers and upgrading a generator are part of the $185,000 project.

The council meets at 6 p.m. in the chambers at the civic center, 1000 Webster St.
