EOC Operations & Planning for All Hazards (MGT 346)
September 13-15, 2016

This 3 day course focuses on the core functions, processes and best practices necessary to ensure effective and repeatable performance of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at any level. The core functions and processes are reviewed and demonstrated via facilitated discussion and classroom activities. The participants gain practical experience via a series of interrelated activities and exercises supported by a state-of-the-art computer simulation system and are coached by instructors who have extensive emergency operations and management experience.

Each participant will gain a better understanding of the management requirements and skills necessary to effectively coordinate and support the response activities during a large-scale event.
