Abstract:

Emergency Operating Center functions and requirements at local, area, sub-State, and State levels are analyzed. EOC roles in times of normalcy, in natural disasters with and without warning, and in the crisis, in-shelter, and postattack phases of nuclear war are examined and compared. Three approaches to a backbone nationwide direction and control network are reviewed. A sub-State system based on existing State Highway department districts is proposed and correlations with other backbone concepts evaluated. In a companion manual, a guide to developing an EOC standard operating procedure is presented, based on the foregoing EOC requirements analysis. The manual includes a sample EOC Standard Operating Procedure for a county. Author
