Good morning Alan,

Pomona college is located in Southern California.  It is a private liberal art college with about 500 employees (staff and faculty) and 1600 students.  We are currently changing the location of our EOC.  The major emergency disaster that we will likely to have is Earthquake, fire, active shooter, and rarely flood.  We do have Hazmat and Restoration and Remediation servicesfrom the vendor.  The college has its own campus safety.  The fire department and police department is 3 miles away from the college. Let me know if you need additional information.




Many thanks for the help.

It would be very helpful to the group to understand inwhat type of organization/facility this EOC will be located, what the potential chemical, physical, natural disaster, etc. hazards exist inyour particular organization/facility, and in what part of the world this EOC will be located.  What are the availabilities of outside assistance (fire/EMS/HAZMAT/law enforcement, etc.) and what internal resources will you have at your disposal.
Such information might generate responses more specific to your needs.
