FEMA Releases EOC Toolkit Documents

Tuesday, January 19, 2021

  • FEMA

FEMA is releasing five Emergency Operations Center Toolkit documents. The toolkit has a collection of customizable tools, templates and guides designed to assist emergency management, specifically Emergency Operations Center managers and staff members on preparing and operating in emergency environments.

These documents will contribute to developing an Emergency Operation Center that can successfully meet the jurisdiction’s needs. The toolkit documents will cover topics such as hazard vulnerability assessments, physical site selection, mitigation considerations, capabilities and requirements, information management systems, as well as training and exercises.

The toolkit is a collective effort with FEMA, emergency management stakeholders and subject matter experts at various levels, representing FEMA,  the Department of Health and Human Services, state and private sector partners.
