is home to the Henderson County Emergency Management Agency and the Henderson County Fire Department Headquarters. This facility was built in 1974 and was the home of the Henderson County Jail until 2010. Grant funding was provided by the Fred Cecil Watson Memorial Fund to update the facility for use as office
and training space for Henderson County's Emergency Services. No taxpayer dollars were spent in the remodel of the center.
This facility provides 3 state of the art conference rooms that can be used to accommodate meeting and training needs for local, state, and federal emergency service partners, and is available to other non-emergency service agencies upon request and availability.
Each conference room provides a different layout and can accommodate audiences of various sizes. All three are equipped with multimedia presentation equipment and internet connectivity.
