Collier County Sheriff Kevin J. Rambosk has been named governing board chairman for the Region 6 Fusion Center.
The Fusion Center, which is scheduled to be operational in March, will be an informational hub for public safety agencies in a 10-county area that includes Collier County. Its goal will be to enhance public safety by breaking down compartmentalization of information and sharing it with other public safety agencies.
The Region 6 Fusion Center will address domestic security, all crimes and all hazards, and will be made up of law enforcement, fire, emergency management and other public health and safety entities and representatives from the private sector in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee, Highlands, Glades, Okeechobee, Hendry and Desoto counties.
The Region 6 Fusion Center will be tied into other regional fusion centers in the state and the statewide and national fusion centers.
