Emergency Operations Centre - EOC

 

Explores the fundamentals of how Emergency Operations Centres (EOC) operate in supporting the needs of response departments and agencies during emergencies and disasters. Explore key aspects of site support operations within an Incident Command System (ICS) management structure.

 

EOC activations are to facilitate the provision of support to a site-specific Incident Command, where Incident Command is working from an Incident Command Post. There are many types of supports that the ECG may provide from the EOC. An added benefit of providing some of these supports would be to free on-site resources to focus on the response where the Incident Commander needs to focus on tactics.
