Emergency Operations Center
The emergency operations center is the central point for coordinating the operational logistical and administrative support needs related to a disaster. The EOC staff gathers and disseminates situation reports and information for the local decision-makers, and other units of local, state and federal government. Through this process, resources can be utilized without duplication of effort and operation can be more efficient. The EOC is the central coordination point for obtaining, analyzing, evaluating, reporting and recording disaster-related information.
