State-Of-The-Art Public Safety Building Completed In Auburn
Auburn has a new public safety building. The 29,600 sq. ft. building is a part of the city’s $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative.
This public safety building houses both Auburn’s Fire Department and Cayuga County Emergency Operations Center. Emergency responders will have access to modern facilities and equipment in the heart of downtown.
A joint resolution between the city and the county mandates the Cayuga County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will operate out of the fire station. The EOC will serve as a public safety classroom for police and emergency management agencies. It can also be utilized during disasters or public health emergencies.
The project received $2 million from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s Climate Smart Communities Grant Program and $1.2 million from the New York State Department of State.
