Construction underway
on new Emergency Operations Center

   Humble ISD held a ground-breaking ceremony on Sept. 19 for its new Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC will house the District Police Department and the Department of Safe and Secure Schools and is scheduled to open in April 2013.

   "The groundbreaking is exciting because it represents an on-going commitment to student safety," said Brent M. Engelage, Chair of the Board's Building and Planning Committee. "The new Emergency Operations Center has been designed to specifically support police officers and emergency management officials in their duties and will allow them to work most effectively. My wife and I have two daughters who attend Humble ISD schools. I believe that safe and secure schools are extremely important and add great value to our community and peace of mind to all parents in our district."

   Key features of the new Emergency Operations Center, located at 1703 Wilson Road in Humble, include: a secure dispatch center; a secure evidence storage room; separate adult and juvenile processing areas; a secure, enclosed drive-through area for the transport of offenders in compliance with state guidelines; a conference room with data and communication infrastructure for emergency management; and administrative, staff and training office space. Construction funding is provided by bonds approved by voters in 2008.
