ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – On Tuesday, Mayor Richard Berry revealed a newly upgraded emergency operations center.

It’s part of a $700,000 project.

The city says it wanted to make sure workers had the most advanced technology and resources available in the event of a crisis.

“If something, God forbid, would happen anywhere in Albuquerque, or even in New Mexico, this center can be used by us, our federal state, and other local partners to do the work that needs to be done in a time of crisis,” explained Mayor Berry.

The emergency center has 288 phone lines that do not interfere with the existing 911 lines.

Mayor Berry says there will be a variety of experts at the center to deal with any crisis or tragedy.
