City of Temple Emergency Operations Center

City of Temple Emergency Operations Center

Project: Architecture

Client: Temple. TX

Contact: Tanya Mikeska-Reed, A.I.A.

Completion Date:  Completed in 2011

Description: Members of the MRB Group Architecture team (formerly Arch Edge) were selected to design a new fire station, Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and training facility for the City of Temple.

To address substantial population growth, the project was intended to provide another staffed fire station and a second EOC for the City.

The EOC is a stand-alone, fully operational emergency response center designed to withstand severe weather and accommodate up to 300 occupants, with additional sleeping quarters, showering facilities and a full kitchen.  The design also focused on preparedness, incorporating a backup generator, stand-alone internet technology infrastructure for security, as well as system redundancy to reduce interruption or failures.
