The public got an up close and personal view of the community's newest high tech facility.
The Community Emergency Operations Center opened its doors Tuesday afternoon for an open house.
The center was bustling, making preparations in anticipation of Hurricane Ike while hosting the event.
"It's been kind of hectic at best, but we have a 10,000 square foot facility and with the amount of break out rooms we have, we can do a couple things simultaneously," Brian Hilton said.
The Community Emergency Operations Center is located in the Wimberly Building in downtown Bryan. Emergency management staff for Brazos County, Bryan, College Station and Texas A&M University operates the center on a daily basis.
