At its January 16, 2007 meeting the ECC Management Board approved the transfer of funds in the amount of $23,050.00 from the ECC Fund Balance Account to fund consultant studies for the Emergency Communications Center.


Since its opening in 2001, ECC has experienced periodic problems with its UPS Battery System with numerous batteries being replaced over the past years.  The electrical engineering firm of Simmons, RockeCharlie & Prince, who are quite experienced in data center backup power requirements and battery design, are being recommended to conduct this study for ECC at a cost of $9,150.00


RCC Consultants will review and recommend alternatives to ECC’s present paging systems for Fire and Rescue. These paging systems have been in existence for over 20 years. The fire service uses low band technology and EMS uses high band technology. We are in the process of combining both agencies together which will require an updated system that they both can use. This upgrade will also allow integration with the new 800 MHz Trunking Radio system and allow some redundancy to be built into the system.  The cost for this consulting service will be $13,900.00.
