More about the Emergency Operations Center

In emergency situations, the EOC provides resources to support on-scene emergency operations. The day-to-day office staff of emergency management are also given the responsibility of monitoring any developing natural and man-made situations and making the appropriate emergency notifications.

In larger scale emergencies, the EOC is activated and representatives from county, municipal, and state departments gather to coordinate response and recovery activities. The York County EOC is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to assist in information gathering, assessment, and public notification. 


Specific tasks performed by the EOC before, during and after an event include the following:


  • Situation Assessment
  • Emergency Planning and Training
  • Consequence Management
  • Multi-agency Coordination
  • Executive Decision Making
  • Public Information Briefings
  • Resource Management
  • On-Scene Management and Coordination
