Work conducted for the Navy Emergency Command and Control Center (ECC) redevelopment feasibility study contributes to HHF’s broad experience in planning command and control facilities and emergency management centers, crucial for disaster management. The ECC leads emergency response efforts when Navy resources are deployed for hurricane, earthquake, or tsunami related disasters throughout the Pacific. HHF worked closely with the ECC’s disaster management administration to understand responsibilities in coordinating with multiple agencies and system needs to inform redevelopment alternatives. In the initial planning stages, the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami occurred and the ECC was activated, highlighting both the need, and importance of this facility in responding to such incidents in Hawai‘i, as well as throughout the Pacific Region.
