Built in the 1950s, Mount Weather has been the Emergency Ops Center for federal civilian agencies and officials of the executive branch. Its mission is still valid but Its details are classified. Mount Weather is operated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) but under Homeland Security Dept. supervision http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8a/Seal_of_the_United_States_Department_of_Homeland_Security.svg

FEMA info focuses on Mount Weather's role in disaster preparedness and mitigation including telephone registration of disaster victims seeking assistance and on-site training of state and local emergency-management officials http://www.fema.gov/media-library-data/1548864463084-5c2100b7172af2c5ed58599c3ab11beb/MWEOC.pdf Students in these courses are housed on the west side of the property in buildings like military barracks. An unusual feature is a notice posted in each room, explaining extensive security regulations.
FEMA says nothing about the large underground complex which is the facility's most famous feature, nor does it mention the installation's secret continuity-of-government mission.
