EOC Operations and Planning for All-hazards and WMD Events Local Jurisdiction
The three-day course allows participants to practice EOC operations in a large-scale incident coached by instructors who have emergency management experience and who provide this training nationally. They will use multi-agency coordination responsibilities, processes, and procedures and focus on key information management, resources coordination and situational awareness requirements within the EOC. The participants gain practical experience (virtual) within a state-of-the-art training environment that exploits the capabilities of computer simulation. Each participant will gain a better understanding of the management requirements and skills necessary to effectively function as a member of an EOC during a large-scale event.
This training is typically delivered at a time and place determined by the requesting jurisdiction. Each course delivery is fully funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security. NERRTC provides the instructors and the training materials, and the host jurisdiction provides the course participants and classroom facilities.
Eligible participants include emergency management and response personnel who currently or potentially work in an EOC at the state, local, tribal or DoD installation level. Enrollment can be single participants, jurisdictions, or mixed.
