Back-up dispatch center at Station 9

A back-up Fire/EMS communication center became fully operational on August 1, 2002. In the event of a failure at the Hall of Justice’s San Mateo County Dispatch Center, the City of Redwood City generously agreed to allocate space at Fire Station #9 at 755 Marshall Street, for this back-up center.

It was designed to be fully operational, 100% independent from the primary dispatch center at the Hall of Justice. It features the following state-of-the-art technology: Zetron Radio Console System, Zetron Telephone System and Computer Aided Dispatch System.

The alternate back-up center is the only fully automated and integrated contingency 9-1-1 center in the County of San Mateo.
