Brevard County breaks ground on new emergency operations center
The new $30 million facility will mean staff from agencies around the county won’t have to sleep where they work. The modern EOC will have a consolidated dispatch center. As for structural improvements, the center will be able to withstand Category 5 hurricane-strength winds and have the latest technology to respond to emergencies.
State Sen. Tom Wright said the world that we live in today has made this next step crucial to responding to emergencies. “This place is activated more often than any other place by one in the entire United States; the second-most active EOC,” he said.
