Emergency Operations Center Training
The Clark Regional Emergency Operations Center, or "EOC", is a central location where local officials meet to coordinate their disaster response and recovery efforts. Police, fire, public works, and other emergency workers continue their work just the same, but the EOC provides them with the additional resources and information they need to protect the community.
The EOC organizational structure is modeled after the Incident Command System, a predetermined organizational structure that is used by almost all public safety agencies, and that is now federally mandated to be used in disaster management.
