Levels of Activation

levels of activation Depending upon the timing, scope, severity, and duration of an incident, the EOC maintains three levels of activation.

Level 1 - Full Scale Activation of the Emergency Operations Center - In a full-scale activation, all primary and support agencies under the county plan are notified. The City Emergency Operations Center will be staffed by Office of Emergency Management personnel and all Emergency Support Functions.

Level 2 - Partial Activation of the Emergency Operations Center - This is limited agency activation. All primary, or lead, Emergency Support Functions are notified. Office of Emergency Management personnel and necessary Emergency Support Functions will staff the City Emergency Operations Center.

Level 3 - Monitoring Activation - Level 3 is typically a "monitoring" phase. Notification will be made to those city agencies and Emergency Support Functions who would need to take action as part of their everyday responsibilities.
