Airport Emergency Operations Centers Design Guide

Airports are required to have their airport emergency plans be compliant with the National Incident Management System (NIMS) and the Incident Command System (ICS). The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5200-31C (change 2) indicates that airports need to describe the relationship of the emergency operations center (EOC) with the field incident command post (ICP). There is information that is available on operating EOCs, but no guidance on their design and layout. The objective of this research is to develop a guidebook to help airports design an EOC.
