For the Leon County Public Safety Complex that we completed in 2013 with Clemons-Rutherford & Associates, three CAT C32 ACERT diesel generator sets provide their backup power. This facility has become a benchmark for emergency service facilities. Says the Facilities and Construction Manager Carl Morgan, “One of the reasons for building the new complex was to consolidate the separate 911 dispatch centers for Leon County and the City of Tallahassee.” “In the past, these call centers often had to manually transfer calls to each other, which was a time-consuming process that impeded response time. Now that they’re working in the same building, utilizing the same protocols and equipment, we’ve eliminated the possibility for lost and dropped calls while increasing efficiency and decreasing emergency response time. We knew it was absolutely essential to install a reliable, standby power system to maintain critical emergency response operations when facing a power outage situation,” Morgan said. “Public-funded projects are prohibited from favoring specific vendors, so we opened bidding hoping to find a power support partner that was local, committed and knowledgeable.”
