Community Project Funding Requests

Congresswoman Titus is requesting funding through the appropriations process for the following projects to help Southern Nevadans:

Flamingo Water Resources Center Emergency Power Project: This project would facilitate the development of an emergency power plan for the Flamingo Water Resources Center, including future installation of generators that will provide new resilience for the facility to manage processes during outages and maintain a level of treatment to avoid an incursion or overflow of wastewater. Funding will make the water district less likely to request additional federal and state resources for temporary power or require additional resources due to a prolonged loss of power in the future.

Red Rock Joint Communications Center:
Funding would support a portion of the costs for a joint project involving Clark County, the City of Las Vegas, the City of North Las Vegas, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD). The entities would design and construct a Joint Communications Center to serve as a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) for police and fire call taking and dispatching. This would benefit all residents in Southern Nevada and enhance emergency management capabilities and emergency operations, especially for large-scale, international events which contribute a significant amount of economic activity for the region.

South Site Emergency Operations Center:
The South Site Emergency Operations Center (EOC) serves as the central command hub during emergencies, facilitating coordination and communication among various agencies and responders. Furthermore, the EOC provides a centralized location for training and capacity building, ensuring that emergency personnel are well-prepared to handle a wide range of scenarios. Funding would update the center with enhancements including advanced communication systems, information management tools, surveillance equipment, emergency notification systems, hardware/software, and training programs. This will ensure that emergency response efforts are effectively managed, leading to quicker and more coordinated responses to incidents such as natural disasters, public health emergencies, large-scale special events and accidents.

A complete list of projects will be made available by Friday, May 24, 2024 in accordance with guidelines set by the House Committee on Appropriations.
