Emergency Operations Center(EOC)

The Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for Huron County is located at our office. It is a central point of coordination that can be used when requested by any incident commander. Resources, incident information and cost documentation can be requested, logged and tracked on the incident commander’s behalf. More commonly, the EOC is used when a countywide event may force a unified command to organize several incident sites throughout the county. That is when resources become stretched and additional resources must be requested from neighboring counties as well as state and federal agencies we partner with. The EOC also has a full radio room to complement the communications at the incident sites and also neighboring EOCs and Ohio EMA.
