The purpose of the emergency operations center (EOC) is to coordinate incident information and resources for management. The EOC will receive, analyze and distribute information on incidents to enable and support the decision making process. The team, working in the EOC, is tasked to find, prioritize, deploy and track critical resources.
The project has a total of approximately 1,120 SF of new construction, and will be located on the second floor of the new Public Safety Building.
The design for the new EOC provides for a work environment that would be functional, comfortable and productive to allow the EOC team to make better decisions in an emergency. A separate HVAC system with controls separate from the building was included. High end materials were selected for sound baffling to make the facility as quiet as possible. High end carpeting was also included to reduce fatigue with the EOC team. A movable partition was designed to enable work and conferencing to take place simultaneously. Work stations were selected that are ergonomic to lessen physical fatigue as much as possible and task lighting was included so that there will be many layers of lighting available to enable longer work shifts.
