Prince George’s County Opens New Public Safety Command Center

Officials in Prince George’s County are celebrating the opening of a new public safety command center and emergency operations hub. As reported in The Washington Post:

The 46,000-square-foot building can run on a generator for 21 days thanks to the 20,000 gallons of fuel held under the facility, county officials said. It also has places for employees who may be working 12- or 15-hour days during emergencies to rest and shower.

The building will also house a new 911 center that will serve as a back-up. Before, Prince George’s was the only county in the state that didn’t have a back-up 911 center as required by state law.
