Regional Emergency Communications Center and Dare County Emergency

Lyall Design, in collaboration with Schrader Group, present a new Public Safety Facility in Dare County, NC. 

Dare, Hyde and Tyrrell are the first three counties in North Carolina to consolidate emergency 911 communications. Once calls are dispatched from the new facility, 911 staff will be communicating with over 50 agencies to provide emergency services in a three county area that covers approximately 3,400 miles. The average number of calls has been estimated at 153,000 per year or one call every 30 seconds.

The new building also provides administrative offices for Dare County EMS, Dare County Emergency Management, the Dare County Fire Marshal, and serves as the Dare County Emergency Operations Center (EOC), where agencies come together to work during emergency response and recovery operations, such as hurricanes.

The 18,230 s.f. facility is located in Manteo, North Carolina.
