Each jurisdiction will devise a scenario that best serves its local needs. The county EOC plays a supporting and coordinating role, requesting status and receiving reports from each jurisdiction. For ideas and minimum criteria, see the Drill Instructions for ECs

  • Practice intra-city communications for local data gathering and reporting
  • Practice city to county communications for consolidated info exchanged with the county EOC
  • Provide opportunities for F3, F2, P3, P2, N3 and N2 Credential Evaluations. Packet and Field evaluations will be conducted in the parking lot. Net Control evaluations may be conducted in the parking lot.

For those working in the parking lot, an ICS-205 will be provided at staging when you arrive at the drill. Do not come to the EOC, all your work will be in the parking lot.
