Location: Sacramento, California, USA

Site-14 is the primary hub for the SCP Foundation's Telecommunications Monitoring Office western operations, being their largest facility worldwide, with a staff of more than 1300 Foundation employees. It also serves as the location of the primary servers for the Emergency Services Anomaly Screening (ESAS) algorithm, responsible for parsing all phone calls made to emergency services in the western hemisphere.




Location: Santa Clara Valley, California, USA

Site-15 is a Foundation facility specialising in the containment and study of electric, electronic, and computer-based anomalies, within a building designed to blend in amongst the civilian tech companies of Silicon Valley. The storage and containment wings of Site-15 are electromagnetically isolated to prevent any interaction between anomalous electronics and the outside world. The Site also serves as the headquarters of the Foundation's IT department and Artificial Intelligence Applications Division (AIAD), managing Foundation databases and communications worldwide.





Site-17 is the second largest Foundation facility, primarily focused on the containment and study of low-risk humanoid entities, although the Site has additional capacities for the containment of inanimate objects, non-humanoid creatures, and higher risk anomalies. As per its main focus, Site-17's permanent staff includes a large number of medical and psychiatric professionals, to deal with the unique physical and psychological needs of both the contained anomalies and the on-site staff working in this challenging environment.





Site-18 is a relatively small facility, primarily used for the storage and testing of anomalous objects. The Site also has a biological sector used for the containment of anomalous animals.
Site-18 is not the Headquarters of the Department of Disinformation.





Site-19 is the largest and one of the most important Foundation facilities currently in operation, housing hundreds of Safe- and Euclid-class anomalies, some located within additional Facilities separate from the main Site. Site-19 also has dedicated laboratories for the processing and storage of Anomalous Items not warranting their own Special Containment Procedures. Site security is prioritized, since the danger of containment breaches is heightened by the large number of anomalous objects contained in one location. Despite these dangers, Site-19 staff are notorious for their casual approach to low-risk anomalies.



Storage Site-23


Site-23 is used to store inanimate objects, particularly those with anomalous metamorphic or transfiguring effects on biological entities. The Site also possesses facilities for the cryogenic containment of deceased or inactive anomalous entities, and for anomalous animal research.
