Barry Furey Public Safety Consulting website

Barry Furey has more than 45 years’ experience in public safety with an emphasis on public safety communications.

He’s been directly responsible for the management of large volume communications centers in four different states, and have also served as a fire officer in three. This has allowed him to see first-hand as both a user and administrator what works and what doesn’t.

Barry helped create telecommunicator training standards in New York, established the largest land area 9-1-1 system in Illinois from scratch (in a year when two-thirds of similar referendums were defeated), secured the first CALEA Accreditation for a 9-1-1 center in Tennessee, and championed the cause which secured construction of a 95,000 square foot,  $71 million Critical Public Safety Facility in North Carolina
