Starting out the official FEMA G775 EOC Management and Operations course today.
And if you didn’t know what EOC was…..
And now you know.
In this class, we are fortunate to talk about our fine partners in public safety represented in 15 different ESFs. As an example, the biggest nerd….I mean guru on radios is everyone’s favorite Comms guy, ladies and gents, put your hands together for John Neeeeeeeeeeeebl!!!!!!
Happy to give the floor to him to share the efforts of the ITECS trailers and the COML function with everyone.
We also discussed a ton on positions and what is done to serve the EOC. We talked a bit on plans and how they drive the train along using the planning P as a guide to the formulation of the IAP.
Now, your EOC is waaaay more than just getting a few computers.
Yikes. That’s right, you can’t have everything on computer, you need ACTUAL human beings running the show.
Not only a warm body, but also highly trained individual and pros that possess knowledge and experience to make critical decisions to support operations as well as support the ongoing operational periods. So basically we need peeps that know how to work a disaster.
So to help put things into perspective, we showcased our own EOC too.
Honestly, we hope that you know our EOC because if we spin up, we want you to know our setup so that we can all function well TOGETHER. Again, the EOC should be used as a coordination center for our all-hazards partners.
Solid first day as we talk about the benefits of the EOC. Glad to have so many partners here in class with us.
