APS Emergency Operations Facility
Arizona Public Service Company
This 31,000-square-foot design-build emergency operations center for the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station was built on a 14.47-acre parcel of land. The center houses an emergency operations facility currently located at the plant and a joint information center currently located at the Papago Military Reservation in Phoenix.
In the event of an emergency at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, plant officials and government leaders will utilize the center to respond and share information with the public. The project also included a 222-seat auditorium where plant officials and government leaders can brief the media and deliver messages to affected residents.
