What is C4?

The Centralized Command & Control Center at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a best-practice model for aviation integrated communications, emergency response and recovery processes. The C4 facility delivers a single communication contact for all incidents for its internal and external customers. This center represents the hub of modern Airport incident management, housing the Airport Operations Center (AOC), Emergency Operations Center (EOC), and the Mobile Command Vehicle (MCV).
