What is an EOC and where is it located?

EOC stands for Emergency Operations Center. An EOC is an area set aside for use by Emergency Management during a disaster to conduct operations regarding the disaster that include conduct emergency communications, distribution of information to stakeholders and the media, and an area for elected officials. We are fortunate here in Oconee County in that our EOC is co-located with the Sheriff's Office and E-911 in Watkinsville, where we are able to make use of the EOC for multiple purposes including training and meetings for public safety personnel.
