News : West Palm Beach Emergency Operations Center Tested Ahead of Erika
West Palm Beach, FL, USA, Aug 26, 2015 -- West Palm Beach emergency operations leaders are testing out critical equipment at their new operations center.
Erika could be the first storm leaders use the new center for.
They met Wednesday to go over last minute plans.
In the new center - there's a dormitory, special office space for the mayor and city manager, and even a call center residents can phone to report damage.
"The City of West Palm Beach is ready. We had a huge meeting this morning with all the department directors and managers and we went over some fine tuning of last minute questions. But remember we are still five days out from any potential landfall," Assistant Fire Chief Diana Matty said.
The roof of the EOC has satellite dishes so communication won't be a problem even if cell phones go out.
The assistant fire chief says, depending on the storm’s track, they could start staffing the emergency operations center on Friday.
