City plans to relocate its Emergency Operations Center

The city of Cupertino is planning to turn the property at 10555 Mary Avenue into a center where city officials can coordinate in the event of city-wide emergencies.

At the Sept. 19 City Council meeting, officials presented the plan to replace an existing 7,100 square foot building currently used as a maintenance and operations yard with a 13,500 square foot center housing the “planning, activation, communication and coordination of emergency responses.”

The current Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is located in the City Hall building, which was not built to meet the services facility code requirements to support its operations, according to city staff, adding the new location will be an ideal meeting point for police and fire services when responding to emergencies.
