LAKE COUNTY EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER PLAN

I.

INTRODUCTION

Lake County must be ready to organize and direct the operations of all existing and incoming resources in the event of a disaster affecting Lake County. The Lake County Emergency Operations Center in coordination with other county departments and municipalities, will act as the direction and control facility during disasters for the assignment of resources and the coordination and approval of all requests for assistance from other jurisdictions.

A. PURPOSE

To establish procedures for the organization, staffing, activation and operation of the Lake County Emergency Operations Center (EOC).

B. SCOPE

These procedures are applicable to all personnel who have designated responsibilities during emergency operations of the EOC. C. AUTHORITY

In the event of a natural disaster or any significant emergency affecting the county, the EOC will be activated by the Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners, the County Manager, who is also the County Disaster Preparedness Officer (CDPO), the Director of Public Safety and the Director of Emergency Management. Upon EOC activation the Emergency Management Director reports directly to the County Manager and is designated the EOC Director (EOC-D). All county departments, under the County Manager, will come under the Operational Control of the EOC-D. The County Manager acting as the CDPO, as necessary, will call into session the Executive Policy Group (EPG). The EPG is the decision making body for the EOC. The CDPO will Chair the EPG. The EPG, as a minimum, will consist of the County Manager, County Attorney, and Director of Public Safety. Others may be added at the discretion of the CDPO.

II. EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTER CONCEPT

A. EOC ACTIVATION IN RESPONSE TO IMPENDING TROPICAL CYCLONE

The Emergency Operations Center, when activated in response to an impending threat by a tropical cyclone, is the central point for directing and coordinating the Board of County Commissioners response. Response operations will be managed using the Incident Command System (ICS). For this response the EOC will also serve as the Incident Command Post with the CDPO (County Manager) as the Incident Commander. The Incident Commander will designate the EOC-D as the Deputy Incident Commander responsible for coordinating the activities of the EOC and the Board of County Commissioners response.

The EOC is organized with five major functions: command, planning, operations, logistics, and finance, each of which may be divided into subfunctional units. The Incident Commander has overall responsibility for the event and will establish, as needed, a Public Information Office, a Safety Office and a Liaison Office as part of his Command Staff. He will also assign to the General Staff, Section Chiefs for Planning, Operations, Logistics, and Finance. Section Chiefs will determine their requirements for sub-functional units and, if needed, will organize in accordance with the Organization Charts shown in Figures 4 and 5 (See pages 38 and 39).

B. EOC ACTIVATION IN RESPONSE TO AN INCIDENT/EVENT THAT HAS AN ONSCENE INCIDENT COMMANDER

Upon EOC activation in response to an Incident/Event that has an established on-scene Incident Commander, the EOC will function in support of the Incident Commander. The Incident Commander may report directly to the CDPO (County Manager) based on seniority or experience.

The Emergency Management Director will be designated as the EOC Director and report directly to the CDPO. The EOC Director will assume operational control of all county departments, under the County Manager, and will coordinate and direct their activities in support of the Incident Commander.
