EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER STATUS
Sept 2021 - The Wayne County Emergency Operations Center is currently on situational awareness and monitoring level
DEFINITION OF ACTIVATION LEVELS
Situational Awareness and Monitoring
The Wayne County EMA has modified normal daily activities to actively monitor a specific situation. The EOC is not activated but will be on stand-by.
Select Emergency Support Functions (ESF) may be engaged in incident monitoring activities on the situation occurring.
The EOC is activated for a special (pre-planned) event or an incident. A Joint Information Center may be activated if needed.
Full Scale Activation
This is the highest level of activation and would be utilized for severe, complex, or large scale incidents. All positions within the EOC will be staffed. Full scale activation will likely require the EOC to be operational 24 hours a day. If 24 hour a day operations become necessary at any level, it will be accomplished by utilizing two 12 hour operational periods.
