The Ott Cribbs Public Safety Center is the main Police Facility and houses the 911 Communications Center, Fire Department Administrative services and the Emergency Operations Center. The facility is nearly 20 years old and was becoming very cramped. The City considered building a new facility to house the 911 Communications and EOC. LBL assisted the City in evaluating the cost of a new center versus expansion and renovation of the current building. Because much of the critical communications infrastructure was already at Ott Cribbs, it was determined that the best use of City funds was to expand. LBL prepared a design which expanded the Communications Center and EOC without having to shut down the critical elements of the building.
