The Emergency Operations Center is home to the Williamsburg Fire Administration Staff on a daily basis. When disaster strikes, the placid building you see day to day turns into a clamorous but well organized machine. The EOC serves as a centralized location from which emergency operations can be directed and coordinated. It houses state-of-the-art technology to include twenty-one computers, eleven video displays, radios, and an audio system to communicate throughout the EOC.
