Emergency Management

The Japan District’s Emergency Operations Center is the hub of information in any crisis situation. Staffed with members of the Crisis Management and Crisis Action Teams, we are able to expand our capacity by engaging USACE reach back resources and Field Force Engineering (FFE) assets to maximize our ability to apply resources to the mission and achieve unity of effort through effective mission command.

During daily operations, the Security, Plans and Operations office ensures the physical, information, and personnel security of our diverse workforce, engages in planning conferences with higher headquarters and tracks all OPORDs, EXORDs, and TASKORDs the district receives. We also track all typhoons and inclement weather that may impact our daily operations, providing a warning and reporting mechanism to outlying offices from Okinawa to Misawa.
