(ECC) is the
nerve center for all emergencies occurring at Fort Carson and Pinon Canyon
Maneuver Site (PCMS), as well as some calls from El Paso County and those
who need help beyond our boundaries. The E-911 center deploys state of the art
technology, capable of interfacing with all local, state and federal agencies.
The staff of eight personnel processes well over 3000 calls per year.
The center is affiliated with National Academy
of Emergency Dispatchers (NAED) and all personnel are certified as EMDs. On
October 21st, 2003, Fort Carson’s Emergency Communications Center
was accredited by the National Academy as the 85th Accredited Center
of Excellence (ACE) worldwide, and earning the prestigious title of 1st

A unique aspect of the operation is the
capability of providing area wide weather conditions, for wildland fire
fighting, through a Remote Automated Weather System (RAWS). The system was built
by the fire department to deploy information, via satellite, to the National
Forest Service for regional fire suppression activities.
