Details

TRB will conduct a webinar on Thursday, November 29, 2018, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)’s Research Report 189: Design Considerations for Airport EOCs and Synthesis 73: Emergency Communication Planning for Airports.

Emergency operations centers (EOCs) are involved in command and control, policymaking, coordination, and overall direction of responding forces in an emergency situation. While commercial airports typically have a space they refer to as the EOC, some EOCs are repurposed conference rooms that may not be adequate for handling all emergency operations. This webinar will provide information to guide airports through the decision-making process involved when considering changes to their EOC. These changes may include upgrading an existing EOC, evaluating a move to an alternative existing space, or building an entirely new EOC.

This webinar is sponsored by the Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
