Bucks County Capital Projects

Bucks County Emergency Services Center

Continuing an ongoing series of capital improvements intended to maximize services provided to Bucks County residents, the Board of Bucks County Commissioners joined local elected officials and members of the emergency management/first-response community October 15, 2008 to cut the ribbon on the county’s state-of-the-art, 911 Communications Center in Ivyland Borough. The center replaces the 911 Center on the 7th floor of the Doylestown Courthouse.

The 911 Communications Center, initially conceptualized four years ago by county Emergency Management Director John Dougherty and Public Works Director Joe Bush, is a second-story annex to the existing county Emergency Operations Center (EOC) – located at 911 Freedom Way. It is yet another step to centralize services in one Ivyland/Warminster Twp. location. As Commissioner Chairman Jim Cawley noted during his welcoming remarks, the county’s first-ever Forensic Facility was opened last October, just across Johnsville Rd. from the EOC/911 Communications Center.
