Most recent status update:The EMCC received an update from staff in July 2010. A drill is planned for later this year to test the capacity of staff to work from home while work is done on the HQ office space. The AAPM is transitioning to a virtual server model with hardware located remotely, thus minimizing the dependence on hardware in the ACP building. Staff report that this saves money and provides redundancy and protection from local disasters. The TG concurs with the staff view but will remain available in 2010 on a contingency basis. - [8/4/2010 by Christopher Marshall] Click to update.
