Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Fleets and Facilities Department (FFD) manages and maintains municipal real property and facilities, as well as overseeing the City’s vehicle fleet. FFD was created in 2001 in a reorganization of the Executive Services Department, which was itself created from a merger between the Finance Department, the Personnel Department, and the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) in 1997. DAS was created in 1980 with the merger of certain functions of the General Services Department, Building Department, Division of Motor Transportation, and Office of Management and Budget.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Records of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), an administrative apparatus designed to facilitate City government and coordination during periods of significant crisis. In the event of such a disaster, the EOC would mobilize and become the central headquarters for the Mayor's Office as well as for the heads of all City departments. The files include pertinent records from EOC, the Office of Emergency Management, the inter-departmental Disaster Management Committee, and the Department of Administrative Services (DAS), which took over management of the OEM following a 1991 reorganization. Records include subject files, organizational charts, internal and external reports, meeting agendas, informational bulletins, and correspondence from a multitude of private entities and public agencies at the municipal, county, state, and federal levels. Topics covered include administration, evaluation of past operations, emergency management procedure, planning, disaster simulation exercises, and training programs.
