EOC Mgt and Ops (G775)
This course has been revised by integrating the ICS EOC Interface course. This two-day course is designed to examine the role, design, and functions of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and their relationships as components of a multi-agency coordination system. The course provides training about staffing and organization, information, systems, communications and equipment needs at the EOC, activating and deactivating the EOC, EOC operations and EOC testing, training and exercising. Participants will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned during group activities. This course will also focus on the coordination between the Incident Command System (ICS) and the decision making procedures taking place in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC). By taking the time to look at the strengths and weaknesses of these two elements, local officials will have the opportunity to develop an ICS/EOC action plan for their community's local emergency response personnel. An overview of both the ICS and the EOC are presented.
