The Department’s Crisis Management Center (CMC) serves as the focal point for the Department’s actions during crises. The CMC is designed to monitor the nation’s transportation systems and infrastructure 24-hours a day, 7 days a week; hosts the Secretary’s Emergency Response Team and other supports personnel who provide the Secretary and the Department’s Operating Administrations with information during crises; supports the Secretary with secure video teleconferencing and around-the-clock communications for unclassified and classified information; provides information to other Federal agencies, the White House, and DOT headquarters and field staff. Additionally, the CMC is the central point for the Department’s interagency liaison and coordination with the Department of Homeland Security’s National Response Coordination Center for federal response efforts.
