The new WCRCC hosted an open house in February 2014 to celebrate their new facility. The event, which was open to the public, was held at the Center’s new location, 1551 N. 17th Ave. in Greeley.
The 10,316-square-foot facility features state-of-the-art equipment and technology, including Next Generation 9-1-1 capability, WeatherTap HD future weather radar, and the Front Range Communications Consortium (FRCC) Radio System.
“This is a vitally important day for Weld County,” said Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer, who also serves as chair of the E911 Authority Board, which provided a portion of the funding for the new center. “The county and the E911 Board are proud of the technology incorporated in this center, and we are proud to offer the best service possible to our Weld County residents and visitors with regard to public safety communication.”
The center, which became fully operational on February 12, cost approximately $4 million.
“The teamwork involved in making this center a reality was impressive,” said Commissioner Chairman Douglas Rademacher. “From the E911 Board, to the Public Safety Communications team to the Buildings and Grounds crew to the vendors who proudly installed state-of-the-art equipment in the center, everyone has worked together to make this a reality for the residents of Weld County.”
