Citrus County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Operations Center

Lecanto, FL

Citrus County Government

The new 40,500 SF Emergency Operations Center / Sheriff’s Administrative Office in Citrus County was designed to centrally locate emergency management services under one roof. The building design allows for easy day-to-day operations of the EOC Center and Sheriff’s office separately, but allows the two divisions to integrate seamlessly in an emergency situation. The 911-call center design uses state of-the-art technology that allows the dispatcher to effectively route emergency calls. The facility, which was designed to withstand up to 165/mph winds, also includes a media center, offices and employee support areas including kitchen, break rooms, sleeping dorms and exercise rooms.
