Life Safety Park

Emergency Operations Center




In addition to hosting public education classes, the Life Safety Park's main education building also houses the City of Coppell's Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC is a central command and control facility responsible for ensuring municipal operations are maintained throughout unforeseen events. It is specially designed with reinforced materials, backup power supply, and advanced technological audio/video equipment. 

On an average day, the EOC is minimally staffed for constant situational monitoring and maintenance; Coppell's EOC contains six specialty computer work stations for monitoring impending weather conditions, controlling city traffic flow and street operations, and communication system maintenance. In the event of EOC activation, additional personnel and representatives from public safety, emergency response, and various support agencies are called in to coordinate and enact the City’s Emergency Operations Plan. 

While the EOC is designed to handle unplanned events and emergencies, it is much more than a reactionary tool for the City. The hub will play host to many training sessions, tabletop exercises, planning workshops, and general preparedness activities in an effort to be as much of a preventative tool as it is to serve in the event of an emergency.
