County Building Safety

The Building Safety Division consists of four distinct units.  It provides building security for all County employees, visitors and over 40 County facilities. 

Their responsibilities include routine after-hours inspections of the main Courthouse and all other County facilities, monitoring of fire and equipment alarms and security systems 24/7. 

Nearly 8,000 alarm points, 950 card access readers, and 2,000 closed circuit TV cameras are administered and maintained by the Security Systems Unit. 

A 24-hour centralized control center is staffed for reporting facility-related problems, Water Resource Commission alarm monitoring, and dispatching of appropriate personnel. The unit also oversees the security and opening and closing of all County buildings daily, along with raising and lowering all flags. 

Building Safety Division also handles:

  • Submission of safety issues (contact information, email)
  • Maintenance of Emergency contact numbers and names by facility
  • Implementation of the Facilities Management Emergency Response Plan
