We provide a Base Defense Operations Center during times of contingency and a garrison Emergency Operations Center in times of natural disasters, i.e.. typhoons.

U.S. Army Garrison Okinawa has (9) locations throughout the island of Okinawa that can experience natural disasters such as typhoons, tsunamis, fires and earthquakes. Army property on Okinawa could also face possible disruptions to transportation and utility systems; airplane accidents; hazardous material spills; criminal and terrorist incidents; and the spread of contagious disease. In order to maintain readiness and ensure the well-being of our Soldiers, civilians and their families, we all need to be prepared to respond to all possible emergencies. Disasters can strike quickly and without warning. What would you do if basic services—food, water, gas, electricity, medical care, telephones—were cut off?
Emergency Preparedness means being prepared for all kinds of emergencies; being able to respond in time of crisis to save lives and property; and to help your community return to normal life after a disaster occurs.
