1 State Emergency Operations Center John H Campbell Operations Chief MO State Emergency Mgt Agency Disaster Operations

2 Agenda Role of the State Emergency Operations Center in response and recovery operations Specific actions in previous disasters

3 The Philosophy of Emergency Management All disasters begin and end at local level Local officials are in charge of response and recovery activities State, Federal, and non-governmental organizations (NGO) resources support local efforts when needs exceed local capabilities

4 What is an EOC? Multi-agency coordination center Central focal point for an organization to execute a coordinated, effective response Encourages collaboration within/between response disciplines Redundant communication systems

5 EOC Missions Maintain situational awareness Allocate existing resources based on guidance contained in emergency plans and guidance from policy-makers Determine critical, unmet needs; seek assistance on filling unmet needs Provide timely information to public Support responders in the field

6 Typical EOC Organization Chief Executive/ Chief Elected Official EOC Coordinator Planning Situation Unit LogisticsAdmin/Fiscal Operations/ Coordination Group Human Services Emergency Services Infrastructure Joint Info Center Policy Group

8 Typical EOC Activations All EOCs are typically activated based on a rapid assessment of an incident or disaster Emergency Operations Plan will outline who has the authority to activate the EOC Emergency Operations Plan will also detail circumstances during which an EOC will “automatically” be activated

9 Activation Levels Three levels of activation for the State and Local Emergency Operation Center Minimal—Emergency Management staff only Partial—Staff from selected agencies Full—Staff from all response agencies

19 Lessons Learned Conference calls were less effective than in previous disasters (now looking at one daily call vs two) Communicating status of resource requests—now looking at staff within SEOC to fulfill liaison roles Finding logistical staging areas was problematic early on in disaster—now researching sites to fill this role

20 PSC Questions on Response

21 Pre-storm Response Actions?? Q. What actions can be taken ahead of time to get things in place? Is it necessary to wait for an emergency declaration? A. Certain actions can be taken in advance of storm, assuming agencies have authority and can pay for those actions out of existing budgets; however, uncertainty in weather patterns makes it difficult to predict what actions will mitigate impacts

22 Immediate Response Actions?? Q. Can things be done that would accelerate the timeliness of response efforts (i.e. activating National Guard sooner to clear roads)? A. Use of the National Guard is determined on a disaster-by-disaster basis, based on impacts to communities, potential missions, and availability of other resources.

23 Summary ALL disaster begin and end locally EOC Mission is Situation awareness, resources management, public information, and support of responders in field Subject Matter Experts for ESF(s) maintain visibility of issues in their area providing situational awareness for the Planning and Logistics Sections
