NASA JSC CAT5 EOC
Johnson Space Center
This project provides for the Design-Build of a new Emergency Operations Center CAT5 facility at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. The new EOC will provide a secured, hardened, and centralized location for the JSC Incident Commander and staff to operate and coordinate with emergency responders during a disaster or emergency event. The facility will be hardened to withstand a CAT5 hurricane and a CAT4 hurricane storm surge, as well as being elevated out of the 500-year floodplain. The new EOC will consolidate the JSC Protective Services Division assets into a singular facility as well as optimally incorporating the Office of Emergency Management, Physical Security, Fire Protection Services, Occupational Health, and the Operations Control Center. The EOC will provide adequate and redundant communications for command and control during a disaster or emergency incident as well as allow for easier command and control of day-to-day operations.
