The course allows participants to practice EOC operations in a large-scale incident coached by instructors who have emergency management experience and who provide this training nationally. They will use multi-agency coordination responsibilities, processes, and procedures and focus on key information management, resources coordination and situational awareness requirements within the EOC. The participants gain practical experience (virtual) within a state-of-the-art training environment that exploits the capabilities of computer simulation.
