Pierce County Emergency Operations Center
Emergency Operations Center, Press Briefing Room, Training Rooms,  Call Center and Conference Rooms

SCOPE: Pierce County needed Avidex to create an Emergency Operations Center that serves as an effective and efficient facility for optimizing communication through effective information management and presentation. This facility helps Fire, Police and other agencies come together during an emergency to coordinate response and recovery actions.

Avidex provided a variety of systems using state-of-the-art audio visual technologies. The facility is equipped with high-performance systems including: touch panel controllers, video teleconferencing, LCD flat screens, projectors and audio. Rooms consist of a large Operations Center with 3 large displays to assist staff with monitoring critical information and for training purposes. Smaller conference rooms allow both emergency staff, as well as other government officials, to help monitor and respond to county-wide emergencies. Avidex designed a press briefing room for information to be shared and connect directly with the media. A centralized media router allows distribution of various video and computer sources to be displayed in any of the spaces. Some of the other rooms include a Disaster Call Center, 3 Break-out Conference Rooms off the Emergency Operation Center and a News Monitoring Room.
