Emergency Operations Center

The Summit County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) serves as the centralized hub for effectively coordinating operational, logistical, and administrative support requirements during a disaster. It plays a vital role in gathering and disseminating situation reports and relevant information to local decision-makers, as well as other units within local, state, and federal government. This critical process ensures efficient resource utilization, avoids duplication of efforts, and enhances overall operational effectiveness.

The EOC functions as the central coordination point for acquiring, analyzing, evaluating, reporting, and documenting disaster-related information. By consolidating and managing this information, the EOC facilitates informed decision-making and enables effective coordination among various stakeholders involved in the emergency response efforts.
