Fire Operations Communications Centre

The Prince George Fire Operations Communications Centre (FOCC) provides centralized call answer and dispatch communications service throughout central British Columbia.

 The Prince George FOCC is located within Prince George Fire Hall Number 1.  Fire Dispatchers are IAFF members who train and debrief  with professional firefighters.  Their service area includes the Fraser-Fort George, Cariboo, Kitimat Stikine and Bulkley-Nechako Regional Districts. The current service area covers over 300,000 km2, a population of approximately 230,840 (2011 census), and 79 fire/rescue agencies.

The FOCC provides comprehensive “end-to-end” fire dispatch service and agency support throughout emergency incidents. Using FDM’s Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system and Panel International’s Windows Intertalk Console (WIC), the FOCC has state of the art technology to assist them in timely and efficient emergency incident location and agency dispatching. 911 calls received in the FOCC contain the caller’s location information and telephone number which automatically populates a CAD map, pinpointing the caller’s location.

Once an agency has been dispatched, FOCC dispatcher remains connected with the agency throughout the incident via a dedicated radio link providing a full range of support services including agency resourcing, incident benchmarking, and documentation.

The FOCC is the vital link between the calling public and emergency service agencies.
