“Brandstetter Carroll selected for EOC Construction”8-12-10 blueprints
After a selection process was completed by the Garrard EOC committee, Garrard County Fiscal Court approved the hiring of Brandstetter Carroll as the architect/engineer for the new $3.1 million Garrard County Emergency Operations Center (EOC). Funds acquired by Garrard County EMA/CSEPP will be used for the construction of this facility which will also include Blue Grass 911.

The new facility will be located on property acquired by the court from the IDA at their park on Danville Road.

Brandstetter Carroll already has shown their talents in Garrard County from their recent completion last year of the new Judicial Center. Since 1979, Brandstetter Carroll Inc. has been proud to be part of so many extraordinary public, private, educational, and institutional projects throughout the United States.

The EOC is the central facility responsible for disaster preparedness, planning, response and recovery functions at a strategic level and ensuring the continuity of operation of Garrard County and City of Lancaster government. Garrard CSEPP Director Jay Overman stated that, “this new facility will help keep the Emergency Management Agency an efficient department that does not create a financial burden on the county and city while providing a point of emergency and disaster coordination.”
