The Jefferson County Emergency Services Authority was formed by the Jefferson County, West Virginia government in order to oversee fire and emergency medical services within the county. Prior to the construction of this facility, the Authority operated the ambulance services out of a sub-standard leased service station. As this area of West Virginia has become a bedroom community for the Washington, D.C. metropolis, the facility provides a modern and efficient operations center that has the capacity to support the population growth. Financing for the project was offered through the USDA Rural Development Community Facilities loan program.

The facility is required to support the medical staff activities, staff and public training, and central office operations. A 3 bay, double-depth garage bay supports 6 standard-length vehicles with a carriage carbon monoxide exhaust system that connects directly to the exhaust pipes of the vehicles to carry away fumes. A medical supply storage room and laundry room are provided. A lounge/ kitchen area and bunk rooms provide on-call quarters for 24 hour staffing. A large classroom provides versatile space for continuing education seminars, first aid classes, as well as a public meeting room for the Authority. Offices, receptionist area, and conference room provides work space for the office staff.
