Madison County Emergency Operations Center

Richmond, Kentucky – Madison County

Bacon Farmer Workman Engineering & Testing, Inc. and Marcum Engineering, LLC provided the structural design and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design for this renovation/new addition project located in Richmond, Kentucky.

This project consisted of the renovation of the existing 28,000 square foot Emergency Operations Center to add approximately 12,000 s.f. of new space to make room for the Emergency Management Agency/Chemical Stockpile Preparedness Program. This program will provide Madison County and the surrounding areas with a disaster preparedness program which is essential during the demilitarization of the nearby Bluegrass Army Depot Chemical Stockpile to ensure the safety of the community in the unlikely case of a chemical disaster.

The renovated facility also houses the local Fire Department, the E-911 Center, and the Ambulance Center. The new addition was designed to withstand up to 200 mph wind gusts and will be operational 24 hours per day/seven days per week.

Spaces within the facility include:

  • Living quarters
  • Lounge areas
  • New truck bays
  • Emergency operations room
  • Upgraded kitchen
  • Staff offices
  • Training room
  • Upgrades to power supply
  • Utilities
  • Technology systems
