Fort Detrick Has New $15 Million Emergency Services Center

The building is a whopping 46,000 square feet. It houses 1,200 employees, including law enforcement, guards, firefighters and emergency responders.
FREDERICK, Md. - Fort Detrick has a brand new, $15 million emergency services center.

Those from Fort Detrick and Congressman John Delaney cut the ribbon Wednesday morning.

"It's greater than just the community of Fort Detrick with what's inside the fence. It actually touches the community outside," said Col. Steven Middlecamp, commander of Fort Detrick.

Both Fort Detrick and parts of Frederick outside the post will be served by the center, which has several green features.

"If we were able to go up on the roof, there's a vegetable roof up on the roof," Middlecamp said. "We're standing on permeable concrete, where water goes underneath."
