TahoeControlCenter.jpg Lake Tahoe Basin End Warning System and Bi-state Next Gen 911 Dispatch and Traffic Management Center
The Lake Tahoe Basin End Warning Systems, will provide a cross-jurisdictional system that emergency managers will use to improve performance, while providing predictive insights and more connectivity between first responders, traffic and transit operations, and the public. The system will integrate Smart Street lights, SaS, and publicly available datasets to provide a better understanding of visitors in the Lake Tahoe Basin including travel movements and duration of stay, emergency roadway issues including closures or hazards caused by landslides, fires, toxic spills, avalanches, tree falls, and power outages. These criteria will be considered for real-time detection and notification systems and reduction in secondary incidents.

First responders and transportation agencies of the Lake Tahoe and Truckee region would also like to develop a Bi-State preliminary exploratory study of a consolidated command center for dispatch services of fire and emergency services with an integrated traffic management center that is consistent with the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the Transportation Department’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
