The City of Brookings, Oregon will be receiving a $350,000 Emergency Operating Center (EOC) in 2010, courtesy of the Office of Homeland Security. If a major emergency such as a fire, flood, earthquake, or tsunami occurs, the EOC will provide a centralized command and control facility for the Police Chief, Fire Chief, representatives of Coos-Curry Electric Cooperative, the U.S. Coast Guard, and representatives of any other agencies involved in the emergency operations. The EOC will also house emergency communications equipment, tables, wall screens, and charts to monitor emergency operations. Click here for more information.
Congratulations to the City of Brookings!
