Abstract : This report provides design information produced for developing Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) at Corps Divisions and Districts and a layout designed to produce an effective EOC for the Office of the Chief of Engineers (OCE). Interviews with OCE EOC personnel provided information on current and planned EOC activities. Designers used this information to develop a feasible layout for OCE office. Researchers visited several Corps Districts and Divisions to determine basic needs in an EOC. This information was used to produce general design criteria which could be used as the basis for planning EOCs. Four EOC sites were visited and their needs analyzed. Solutions to these individual design problems were developed on a site-specific basis. The design criteria produced from this research will be useful to Corps District and Division Facility Engineers for evaluating existing facilities and for designing new ones.
