The Garrard County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is a state-of-the-art facility constructed between 2014 and 2016. The EOC is located at 278 Precision Ct. in Lancaster in the industrial park off KY-52. The EOC is equipped with superior communications abilities and other technology that are vital to emergency operations in times of disaster. The EOC is activated and utilized as the central coordination center and is occupied by senior elected and emergency officials who use the facility to formulate protective action decisions for the community.
The building is also home to Bluegrass 911 which is the public safety answering point and dispatches emergency responders for both Garrard and Lincoln Counties.
