Communications Center Upgrade


The Tangipahoa Communications District #1 is proud to announce that we have remodeled our communications room. 

Remodeling included taking out the old console furniture (12 positions) and replacing it with all new Watson Synergy 3 Center Lift Consoles (14). The new positions now have space for 6 21” monitors, full center lift up to 42”, and a convenience group that includes task lighting, fans, heaters, as well as easy access for technicians to work on equipment.

Also included in the upgrade was an addition of 3 radio consoles. This gives 9-1-1 a total of 6 radio consoles for our fire dispatch operations and a total of 6 console positions with 700 radios within the room. 

New carpet flooring was installed during this time as well.

All of this was done without taking down any of the centers operations due to our vendors (AT&T, EMCO, Electricians, and IT personnel, flooring installers, the Watson furniture installers and work crews from the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriffs Office. These vendors worked very well with and around each other to give us the ability to bring new equipment on line without losing any service to the public.
