1 EOC Management and Operations (G-775) Unit 7 Activating and Deactivating the EOC

2 Unit Objectives  Determine when, how, and by whom the EOC is activated  Define “time-phased” activation and determine when appropriate  Analyze incident needs  Determine when and how to deactivate the EOC

3 Activating the EOC  NIMS General Criteria  SEMS Criteria  Decision varies by jurisdiction  Document the process  Who decides to activate the EOC?

4 NIMS EOC Activation Criteria  When a Unified Command or Area Command is established  When more than one jurisdiction becomes involved in the response  When the Incident Commander indicates that the incident could expand rapidly  If similar incidents have required EOC activation  When the CEO directs EOC activation  When threshold events described in the EOP occur

5 SEMS EOC Activation Criteria GENERAL Criteria for Local EOCs:  Resources required beyond local capabilities  Emergency is of a long duration  Major policy decisions are needed  Local or state emergency proclaimed  Activation of the EOC is advantageous

6 SEMS EOC Activation Criteria- continued  OA EOC Criteria:  7 guidelines per G-611 (e.g. Two or more cities activate their EOCs)  REOC Criteria:  3 requirements per CCR Title 19 Regulations (When any OA EOC within region activates)  SOC Criteria:  3 requirements per CCR Title19 Regulations (Governor proclaims state of emergency)

7 Who Decides to Activate the EOC? The decision making process varies, but should be documented in policy, plans & SOPs.  All personnel must understand:  Who makes the call (with backups)  Circumstances for activation  Levels of activation  Who calls EOC staff (and how)  “Auto Activation” Policy  Who is the “ESD” is by ordinance

8 NIMS & SEMS Activation Levels  Time-phased levels of activations  NIMS & SEMS levels of activation  Basis for levels of activation  Check- IN steps

9 Time-Phased Activation  Time-Phased or Activation Levels may be appropriate when:  An incident occurs that is expected to build over time  There is a warning period before the emergency  In preparation for planned events

10 NIMS Activation Levels  Note the 3 time-phase/levels  Is this used in California? Level 3 (Monitor) Key personnel only Level 2 (Partial) Key personnel and personnel from responding agencies Level 1 (Full) All personnel

11 SEMS Activation Procedures Level 1 (Minimal): EOC Director & P/I Coordinator Level 2 (PARTIAL): EOC Director, Section Coordinators, Branches, & Units as needed Level 3(FULL): All EOC Positions  Note the 3 time-phase/levels  Is this used in California?

12 ICS Plain English Activation Levels MONITOR PARTIALMINIMAL FULL

13 Basis for Activation Levels (Per NIMS) Is all this in your Jurisdictions EOP or EOC SOP/G?  Activation levels should be based on the jurisdiction’s hazard analysis.  The decision about the level of EOC activation should be based on:  Established “triggers” General Guidance & Communication with the Incident Command

14 Check-IN Steps  Formally check-in at the EOC with  Personnel Unit in Logistics  Check-in with your SEMS Supervisor  Operations Coordinator  Get a Briefing from your supervisor  Review the Action Plan for the Op Period  Review your Position Checklist  Role, responsibilities & tasks  Log in and Do Your Job Is all this in your EOC SOP or Position Checklist? IN

15 Activity: Analyzing Activation Procedures  Work in your groups  Review the EOC activation procedures  Complete the EOC Activation Checklist  Select a spokesperson

16 Deactivating the EOC  Increasing & Decreasing EOC Staffing  Deactivation Criteria  Check- OUT Steps  Recovery  Post-Incident Activities

17 Increasing & Decreasing EOC Staff  Increasing & decreasing EOC staff should be primarily dependent upon:  EOC objectives for the Operational Period  Determined by the EOC Action Plan  Assisted by the Demobilization Unit + EXPAND + - Contract -

18 Deactivating the EOC (per NIMS)  Communication with the Incident Commander or Unified Command is the best way to determine when to deactivate the EOC  The EOC Director makes the decision

19 Check-OUT Steps  Get a “formal demob order” by your supervisor  If another person is relieving you, provide a relief “Briefing” before you leave  Clean-up work area, “log out” and transfer any remaining open items to the appropriate person  Complete all required “forms, reports, time sheets, claims, log, etc.” & submit to the proper person  “Formally Check-out” with “Personnel Unit,” return all non-expendable items & get a debrief  Be prepared to provide input to the AAR Is all this in your EOC SOP or Position Checklist? “BOOT”

20 Transitioning to Recovery  How does the EOC transition from response to recovery?  When does recovery really start?  What are the factors/indicators to FORMALLY transition into full recovery mode?  How is it done smoothly?

21 After-Action Analysis & Reporting  Should involve:  All key EOC personnel (EOC Mgmt & Gen Staff)  The Incident Commander(s)  Jurisdiction leadership (CEO, Mgmt & Gov Body)  Others as appropriate (e.g., stakeholders)

22 Summary  EOC activation criteria  EOC activation levels  Increasing & decreasing EOC staffing  EOC de-activation criteria  Questions & Answers
