Fayetteville dedicates emergency center

Fayette County officials and staff gathered Thursday morning for the official dedication of the Department of Fire and Emergency Services’ new Emergency Operations Center in Fayetteville. The 4,800-square-foot building was funded by $1.1 million in grants from the federal and Georgia emergency management agencies. Equipped with state-of-the-art visual, computer, security and communications equipment, the facility will serve as the coordinating point for disaster responses and recovery, and for training.
