The Harris County Office of Homeland Security & Emergency Management (HCOHSEM) exists to prepare and protect its residents from disasters of all kinds. During an emergency, HCOHSEM activates its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to support and coordinate emergency operations, and to keep stakeholders and the public informed.
In 2014, HCOHSEM acquired additional space at Houston TranStar, to better accommodate staff and provide a larger and more efficient EOC to serve its more than 4.3 million residents. Because backup communications are vital during an emergency, a new state-of-the-art Communications Center (CC) was also designed to complement the new EOC.
“HCOHSEM constantly works to develop new internal systems that further improve emergency operations,” said Harris County Emergency Management Coordinator Mark Sloan. “Our new Communications Center is the technology component, it provides the equipment and systems needed during disaster operations.”
