Columbia, MO (June 8, 2016) – Tech Electronics of Columbia provides technology solutions for the new Boone County Emergency Communication Center. The new $12.8 million facility, completed June 8, includes 500K in state-of-the-art communication and life safety technology.
“The old facility’s aging technology had started to become an issue,” says John Pile, Director of Tech Electronics Columbia. “By building a new facility we were able to tailor the latest technology to fit the Emergency Communication Center’s needs now and well into the future.”
Tech Electronics was awarded the project through the bidding process to design and install a suite of life safety, pro sound, and audiovisual technology. The Emergency Communication Center features an intelligent fire alarm system from industry leading Notifier and video surveillance from Avigilon, which will be integrated with the access control system, creating a secure environment for employees. The 911 Center is also equipped with 45 TV’s in training rooms and the command center’s situation rooms to provide satellite views of the event as well as real-time news events.
The new space allows for the Boone County Joint Communications and the Office of Emergency Management to be housed in the same building. Although the new facility is completed, the Joint Communications and the Office of Emergency Management are not slated to move until the fall.
