Managing Crises With Campus Emergency Operations Centers
Here’s how Superstorm Sandy prompted Stony Brook University to transform its EOC from a conference room into a fusion center
Can your campus emergency operations center (EOC) handle a large-scale disaster, as well as all of the signals coming in from its critical operations systems?
At the Campus Safety National Forum in Washington, D.C. on June 26 and Chicago Campus Safety Conference July 13, Stony Brook University Assistant Chief of Police and Office of Emergency Management Director Lawrence Zacarese described the challenges his campus experienced during 2012’s Superstorm Sandy.
