New Horry County Emergency Operations Center Opens Its Doors

Construction took a little less than two years and crews are still working on a few finishing touches.

Horry County has opened a new emergency operations and communications center. The 43,000 square foot facility called the ‘Randall S. Webster Emergency Operations and Communications Center’ is located in the same complex as the J. Reuben Long Detention Center in Conway and named after Randy Webster, Horry County’s Director of Emergency Management with more than 30 years of experience in the county. The $24 million facility features increased space for emergency operations, including bunks, kitchens and a large command center. Construction took a little less than two years and crews are still working on a few finishing touches.
