SPRINGFIELD GREENE COUNTY PUBLIC SAFETY COMPLEX COORDINATION CENTER
Designed for Silver LEED certification, on top of the Greene County PSCC is an innovative "Green Roof" that utilizes plant life to maintain internal structural temperatures to conserve energy.
Able to remain in operation 24/7 in the event on an emergency, the main building is hardened to mitigate all natural and technological risks. The structure is able to withstand tornados, floods, earthquakes, and pandemic events. The center houses offices for the Emergency Operation Center, Multi-Agency Coordination Center, Regional Joint Information Center, multi-use areas, Greene County Information Systems server room, and an alternate EOC for the Missouri State Emergency Management Agency. The Green County PSCC may also support potential future public safety partners such as the FBI, Sheriff’s Office Administration, and Springfield Fire Headquarters.
A significant training component is critical to the mission of the facility. Built into the PCSS is a flexible learning environment with classrooms that can accommodate seating of 20 to 80 people. There is also a “theater style” classroom able to hold 40 people at a time. Technology and audio-visual support allows classrooms to provide a variety of training scenarios, including configuration as a “hot center” with communications/ dispatch consoles that can be utilized in a disaster activation situation to provide enhanced communications 7 operability.
Greene County PSCCC was recently awarded top honors in Technology at Infocomm's 1st annual People's Choice Awards.
