Emergency Operations Centers
Our city wants to look into setting up a EOC for major operations. Are you presently using a EOC, and can offer any help so we do not reinvent the wheel?? Any help you can give would be appreciated

Your local Emergency Management office will have all of the information you need. If your town doesn't have an EMA then the Co. does.
The EOC is where the members of your LEPC will go to coordinate activities during a disaster. Their are desks for your elected officials, police, fire, public works, EMA and who ever else your community thinks it needs to help coordinate.
Both FEMA and your Co. will have specific information on how to set up an EOC. If you can't get info from your local EMA or the Co EMA continue up the chain to your State EMA. If you are having trouble locating your EMA reps they may be listed under ESDA or Civil Defense (old terms but the same agency).
If you really get stuck E-Mail me and I'll help you track down what you need.
