Originally constructed for President Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II, it is presumed to be designed to withstand all but direct nuclear blasts and is likely to be the President's evacuation point in the event of an incoming ICBM (the main protocols of escape are highly classified). It is not in the same location as the Situation Room, which is in the basement of the West Wing. However, it does possess several televisions, telephones and a communications system to coordinate with other government entities during an emergency.
During a breach of White House security, to include P-56 airspace violators, the President and other protectees will be relocated to the executive briefing room, next to the PEOC. Day to day, the PEOC is manned around the clock by the joint military officers and NCOs.
The PEOC was the secure location where Secret Service agents had evacuated President Benjamin Asher, Vice-President Charlie Rodriguez, Secretary of Defense Ruth McMillan and Admiral Joe Hoenig, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Presidential aide Mary Jane Fuller, as well as South Korean Prime Minister Lee Tae-Woo and his security detail. Then, several traitorous members of the South Korean security detail, led by Kang Yeonsak and Dave Forbes, killed the U.S. Presidential Detail (including agents O'Neil, Jones and Davis) and PEOC technicians and took the high-ranking members, including President Asher, hostage while Kang's men took over the White House.
After Kang executes Prime Minister Lee on the live video feed, they secured the hostages in the railing with zip-ties. Kang's henchwoman and technical expert, Lim, had taken control of the White House security systems. As they set up everything, someone disable the White House's surveillance feed, much to Kang's surprise.
After a failed attempt to recapture the White House, Kang retaliates by assassinating Vice President Charlie Rodriguez from the bunker in front of Speaker of the House Allan Trumbull everyone at The Pentagon, much to their horror.
Before he could execute United States Secretary of Defense Ruth McMillan in front of the media from the front of the White House, Mike saved her and killed several more K.U.F members, forcing Kang to retreat to the bunker.
When Kang had activated a highly classified military protocol and fail safe called Cerberus, he and his remaining henchmen prepared to leave the bunker and attempted to escape. However, Mike had killed the remaining terrorists and engaged in had-to-hand combat with Kang. Though he fought on par with Kang, he was overpowered. However, he was able to incapacitate and kill Kang after he was distracted by President Asher. Mike proceeded to shut down Cerberus to save America with aid from the Pentagon.
The PEOC is an underground bunker that is designed to be impenetrable. It is stated as being 120 feet underground.
