EOC Volunteer

Overview

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) volunteer program allows individuals to serve the community by learning how to staff and manage the EOC.  The program is a good opportunity for personnel with military, law enforcement, fire, or emergency management experience to build upon their skills.  Volunteers are trained on how to operate the technology in the room including smart boards, video and audio switching, video teleconferencing, and radio systems.  Knowing how to manage the center is also a critical skill taught to volunteers.  Program participants meet twice a month and have many opportunities to learn valuable skills they can apply to current and future positions. EOC
