Data Layer GraphicTitle: "North Carolina Emergency Operations Centers" (2007)
Description: Emergency Operations Centers (EOC) in North Carolina "The physical location at which the coordination of information and resources to support domestic incident management activities normally takes place. An EOC may be a temporary facility or may be located in a more central or permanently established facility, perhaps at a higher level of organization within a jurisdiction. EOCs may be organized by major functional disciplines (e.g., fire, law enforcement, and medical services), by jurisdiction (e.g., Federal, State, regional, county, city, tribal), or some combination thereof." (Excerpted from the National Incident Management System) In instances where TGS could not verify the location of an Emergency Operations Center due to non-cooperation of the entity and to the exhaustion of all possible alternative resources, its location was depicted at the center of the service area. In cases where an Emergency Operations Center has a mobile unit, TGS captured the location of the mobile unit as a separate record. This record represents where the mobile unit is stored. Text fields in this dataset have been set to all upper case to facilitate consistent database engine search results. All diacritics (e.g., the German umlaut or the Spanish tilde) have been replaced with their closest equivalent English character to facilitate use with database systems that may not support diacritics. The currentness of this dataset is indicated by the [CONTDATE] attribute. Based upon this attribute, the oldest record dates from 03/28/2007 and the newest record dates from 05/04/2007. Homeland Security Use Cases: Use cases describe how the data may be used and help to define and clarify requirements. 1. A resource for preparing, mitigating, responding to and recovering from an emergency. 2. A list of resources to draw upon by surrounding areas when local resources have temporarily been overwhelmed by a disaster. 3. A resource for Emergency Management planning purposes. 4. A resource for catastrophe response to aid in the retrieval of equipment by outside responders in order to deal with the disaster. 5. A resource for situational awareness planning and response for Federal Government events.
