Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
The EOC is where centralized emergency management is performed during major emergencies or disasters. The EOC function facilitates a coordinated response by community, local, state and federal agencies. The level of EOC staffing depends upon the situation but can range from 4 to 75 people. Located in the Heber Public Services Center, the EOC space serves as the Fire/OES administrative area as well as a training facility. In an emergency, the space is converted into a full operating EOC within two hours.
