FPS operates Mobile Command Posts (MCP) to meet this demand. Strategically located around the country, FPS regional offices maintain their assigned MCP in ready condition for immediate deployment to any emergency incident nationwide.

Currently, each MegaCenter monitors multiple types of alarm systems, closed circuit television, and wireless dispatch communications within federal facilities throughout the entire nation. The centers—located in Michigan, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and Maryland—are equipped with state-of-the-art communication systems and in operation 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
