An effective EOC quickly brings together highly trained experts, community leaders, and state-of-the-art technology to coordinate resources, information, and communication during emergency situations. EOCs are essential to ensure public safety, however, not all municipalities have the budgets for a standalone EOC facility. With careful planning, a primary or back-up EOC can be seamlessly integrated into the design of a Central Fire Station, Law Enforcement Facility, or a combined Public Safety Headquarters. This presentation will review the benefits of integrating an EOC into another emergency response facility and outline the spaces needed to maximize efficiency of each function during an emergency activation.
