About the SEOC

Minnesota’s State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) activates during times of disaster or emergency. It serves as the hub for state agencies and their partners to support local governments and coordinate response efforts. Having an efficient and effective facility is key to successful emergency and disaster response. Lawmakers are now considering a $33 million bonding proposal which would build a new SEOC to replace the outdated one in downtown St. Paul.
