CBRNE Protection Officer: 858-307-1281
Mission Assurance also maintains the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). The EOC is activated in response to a crisis at or around MCAS Miramar. Hours of operation vary depending on duration of the incident. Upon activation, the Senior Watch Officer can be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 858.307.8537.
The IEAP is a quick reference guide for responding to the hazards and threats considered most likely to impact Miramar personnel. The San Diego area is prone to threats and hazards, both natural and man-made. The most critical part of any response is to have a plan of action and be mentally prepared to execute it. A simple plan is better than no plan at all. Download the IEAP here.
