RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider acceptance of a grant award from the Office of the Governor, Homeland Security Grants Division for the Nueces County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Enhancements Project.
BACKGROUND
The Homeland Security Grants Division (HSGD) of the Governor’s Office is soliciting applications for projects that support state and local efforts to prevent terrorism and other catastrophic events and prepare for the threats and hazards that pose the greatest risk to the security of Texas citizens. HSGD provides funding to implement investments that build, sustain, and deliver the 32 core capabilities essential to achieving a secure and resilient state.
DISCUSSION
The Emergency Management staff submitted an application for enhancements to the Emergency Operations Center. The project is designed to build upon previous work completed through other SHSP awards in order to enhance the EOC and its ability to effectively communicate and maintain situational awareness with field personnel, MetroCom, city EOCs, and the DDC/SOC. This would be done through the acquisition of situational awareness displays, a smartboard, and software licensing for SituMap. The grant application totaled $8,488.29 and there is no match required.
