This is an outline of plans for a new emergency management center in Ohio that would deal specifically with large-scale disasters. The topics covered include circumstances that would require the facility's use and possible alternate uses. The physical layout, location, size and space requirements of the facility are discussed in detail. Equipment requirements, the known local hazard potential in Columbus, the community and government requirements and a contingency plan are also included in this detailed proposal.

From the Paper:

"The facility must be located in an area, which is easily accessible to most people. It must be located in an area that has a less likely potential of being involved in a disaster itself. It should be convenient enough for personnel to reach in a disaster. It must be large enough to accommodate the facility. It should be far from railroad tracks, industrial plants, and congested areas of the city. For these reasons I am proposing that the facility be located on the Old Fort Hayes Army Encampment. The camp has been unused and has been in dis-repair for many years. It is located 1 mile from downtown and is easily accessible via Cleveland Avenue and I-71. It is not located near any known sources of potential disaster such as a dam, railroad, or river. It takes approximately 2-21/2 hours to reach from any point in the state. It contains enough ground to add future expansions as well. This would be an excellent site for the command center."
