Security & Gate Access

DC Ranch provides 24-hour security services, through a third-party contractor, operating 23 gates throughout the community and two Community Patrol vehicles. A third security vehicle is used for the path and trails during normal business hours. The Security Dispatch and Command Center at the West Gate location is linked to over 100 continuous live video feeds overseeing gates, pedestrian underpass crossings and other remote entry points. Members of the DC Ranch Patrol staff, Security Manager and supervisors are Emergency Medical Response certified, which can act like first responders and can provide on-scene first aid, CPR, AED and other minor medical services. However, for life threatening situations or imminent danger, call 911 immediately.
