The new Metropolitan Emergency Medical Services Headquarters in Little Rock is an important step forward for the organization. The $10 million, two-story, 37,000-square-foot headquarters contains a hardened dispatch department on the first floor that is designed to withstand severe wind and seismic loads. The operations and logistics areas occupy the remainder of the first floor. A pull-through covered ambulance resupply area has been provided near logistics. The second floor contains the executive suite, the Little Rock Ambulance Authority board room, finance department, accounts receivable/billing, human resources, and a large training department that includes a 1,500-square-foot multi-purpose room.
