Virtual Tour of the FDA Emergency Operations Center

Welcome to the FDA Emergency Operations Center

Office of Crisis Management manages FDA's Emergency Operations Center (EOC), activating an Incident Management Group based in the EOC with augmented staffing from relevant Centers and Offices to monitor emergency situations, triage complaints and alerts, issue mission assignments to organizational components, coordinate overall agency response operations, and communicate with external partners requesting technical and material support. FDA's EOC serves as the central point of contact with the Department of Homeland Security's National Operations Center, HHS Secretary’s Operation Center, CDC Emergency Operations Center, USDA/FSIS Situation Room, and other Federal EOCs as appropriate.

The EOC can accomodate up to 30 emergency response personnel.
