Ohio County Taps Federal Engineering for Dispatch Center Funding Models
Monday, November 27, 2017 | Comments

Ashtabula County, Ohio, awarded Federal Engineering a contract to assess various funding models for emergency communications centers.

A crucial element of a successful emergency center consolidation is establishing the funding mechanisms. Federal Engineering will work with county decision-makers and stakeholders to develop up to five viable funding models for a consolidated emergency communications center. The three primary cost categories are planning, operational and capital transition, and ongoing operational costs after consolidation.

“Fair and equitable cost-sharing solutions must be determined as part of the transition planning and are an essential component of our governance agreements,” said Mike Fitchet, director of Ashtabula County Emergency Management Agency (EMA).
