The Real Definition
The EOC is where uncomfortable officials meet in
unaccustomed surroundings to play
unfamiliar roles making unpopular decisions in
much too little time.
19
OSC vs. EOC

trees.
The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) manages
the forest.
20
Purpose of an EOC

manage the overall disaster assist
people reduce the devastating consequences
rather than add to them start the recovery
process return the community to normal
21
Five Basic Functions of an EOC
22
When is the EOC activated?
  • When the On Scene Commander no longer can control
    the incident with the resources
    available. Or
  • Multiple incidents exist that stretches the limit
    of the first responders.
