Emergency Operations Center

Albuquerque's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is a support center. and FEMA headquarters for major disasters or incidents

Exterior of the Emergeny Operations Center.    Interior of the Emergency Operations Center

In the event of an emergency or disaster, the EOC's primary purpose is to support the incident commander at the incident location.

At the EOC, various divisions plan for future activities related to the emergency and develop strategies to recover from the incident.

Albuquerque's EOC is organized on the guidelines of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as outlined in the National Incident Management System (NIMS). This ensures maximum operational effectiveness between all levels of government.

Under the Homeland Security guidelines, four sections – Operations, Logistics, Planning, and Finance – have a chief and several divisions.

So, if the type and severity of the incident calls for it, Operations will include Police and other Law Enforcement, Fire, Rescue, Hazardous Materials, Public Health, Energy, and Communications. Other divisions may be involved as well.

If a disaster occurs, the EOC Situation Analysis Team (SAT) will evaluate and decide which divisions need to be activated to best support the incident.

Mark Reynolds will be our Tour Guide at this facility.

Mark Reynolds, Associate Director of UNM Information Technologies, and Manager of Core IT Services: IT Networks. Mark has over 40 years of telecommunications service, 30 years of which are in higher education.
