The City of Huntington Beach Emergency Operations Center (EOC) held a Grand Re-Opening Open
House on August 31 to showcase its new technology. Located in City Hall in the Lower Lobby, the EOC  features a new video wall for incident tracking, SmartBoard, and software that provides real-time incident tracking and improved internal and external communications. Designed to
serve as a headquarters during a major disaster or incident, the technology also allows for a live video feed from the city's Police helicopter and the field operations.

 

 The Open House offered a glimpse into the City's efforts to respond most effectively to emergency situations such as disasters. Paid for through grants and agency funding, EOC is but one of the City of Huntington Beach's efforts to keep the Orange County, California beach community safe.

 

The City has a comprehensive Emergency Management Program which includes an Emergency Management Plan, Emergency Operations Center, Emergency Management Team, Public Safety Officers, Employee Safety Officer Program, Public Education Program and trained volunteers. Community preparedness training for volunteers includes CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) and RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services) programs.

 

The Open House dedication included an introduction by Mayor Dave Sullivan and speeches by Glorria Morrison, Emergency Services Coordinator, and Duane Olson, Huntington Beach Fire Chief.
