Abstract:

An initial examination was made of the use of emergency operations centers EOCs in natural disasters in American society in the last eight years. Problem areas were noted in participation in EOCs, tasks carried out at EOCs, the location of EOCs, and the time of activation of EOCs. However, EOCs were found to be of value and important in a response to community emergencies.
