The Cumberland County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) serves as an information and assistance point for emergency response activities. EOC activation is desirable when one or more of the following situations occur:
there exists an imminent threat to the safety or health of the public;
multi agency/multi-jurisdiction response and coordination is necessary;
local resources are inadequate or depleted and/or significant local mutual aid, state and/or federal resources must be utilized;
the disaster affects multiple political jurisdictions within the County which are relying on the same emergency resources;
in the case such as: local emergency ordinances have been implemented to control the emergency situation (e.g. evacuations).
