911 Emergency Communications

911 Emergency Communications

Medford, OR

The 911 Regional Emergency Communications Center is a critical piece of infrastructure, so security was of primary concern.  At the same time, it was important to provide a comfortable working environment for staff who are engaged in fairly high-stress activities.  Areas of protected glazing enable the dispatchers to enjoy natural light and views of the landscape and distant mountains.  Functionally, the dispatch center is the focus of the facility.

“ORW educated themselves with our specific functional and communications need along with the extensive structural and system requirements required for an Essential Facility.  The provided a very responsible design solution and concise documents for what is now a state of the art facility.”
Margie Moulin, Executive Director
Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon, 911
