Township Emergency Management Association (TEMA)
Emergency Management Educational Webinar
Locating and Outfitting an EOC
Your township’s comprehensive emergency management program (EMP) should consist of an updated emergency operations plan (EOP), a certified and trained emergency management coordinator (EMC), and an adequately-equipped emergency operations center (EOC).
The importance of having an EOC, whether it is a purpose-built facility or just a multi-purpose room at the township building or fire hall, is so that your township has a dedicated space in which to provide strategic management during an emergency. It can also do double-duty as the storage place for equipment needed by your emergency management team.
Not all emergencies need the use of an EOC. However, when the time comes to need a place where your emergency management team can assemble in one place to manage its response to disasters that require coordination across multiple jurisdictions such as a hurricane or tornado, you will be glad that you have your own location that meets your EOC needs.
By attending the webinar, you will:
• Learn how to evaluate potential locations for siting your EOC.
• Learn how to outfit the EOC with necessary equipment.
• Understand the training needs of EOC staffers.
Who Should View:
Emergency management coordinators (EMCs) and related personnel, township supervisors, and others interested in emergency management.
