Cobb’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is in a convenient location and provides a single, recognizable focal point for disaster management. The EOC carries out seven basic functions: startup or activation, administration and event documentation, information management, resource management, disaster analysis, decision making, and recovery.
The Cobb County Emergency Operations Center
- Handles emergencies that are too large to be controlled from an on-site command post.
- Provides inter-agency coordination and executive decision making for managing disaster response and recovery.
- Assures that communication efforts are quick and effective with responding forces, the general public, the media, and others.
- Ensures the integrity of operations and keeps unauthorized persons from entering the facility with the assistance of security personnel and system.
