CITY UNVEILS NEW EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER

 

            News organizations are invited to the unveiling of the City’s new Emergency Operations Center (EOC) today (Thursday, September 5) at 1:00 p.m.

 

The EOC has been renovated with major improvements since the September 11 terrorist attacks last year.  The facility now has state-of-the-art technology that enables immediate viewing of important data and better coordination of emergency city services during a crisis.

 

Acting Civil Defense Administrator Doug Aton and Information Technology Director Courtney Harrington will conduct the briefing on the EOC capabilities.

 

The EOC is located at the Oahu Civil Defense headquarters in the basement of the Honolulu Municipal Building at 650 S. King St.
