How Emergency Operations Centers Help the Public

As the population in cities and other communities throughout the world increase, so too does the need for centers to be of assistance in times of need in these areas. Emergency Operations Centers are intended to both educate and keep safe communities affected by the spread of disease. As stated above, when there is an outbreak of a disease in a massively-populated area requires intervention from centers such as this. Emergency Operations Centers not only assist the population on becoming more knowledgeable in regards to what they are facing they also act as the force that separates those who are affected by a disease and those who are not.
