The goal of the course is to provide state and local emergency management officials with the knowledge and skills they need to operate an Emergency Operating Center (EOC) and interface it with an Incident Command System (ICS) field operation. The course provides an opportunity for participants to begin developing an ICS/EOC interface for their community. The course reviews ICS and EOC responsibilities and functions and depends heavily on exercise and group discussions to formulate the interface.
Target Audience: State and local personnel responsible for developing, staffing, managing and operating an EOC and coordinating EOC operations with a field command post.
Note: This course is part of the FEMA Advanced Practice Series (APS). The APS curriculum provides "how to" training focused on skills needed for emergency operations and management.
