Emergency Operations Center Handbook Templates
The North Central Texas Emergency Management Working Group has developed Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Handbook Templates based on the National Incident Management Systems (NIMS) guidance, subject matter expertise, and industry best practices related to the operation of an EOC.
Three sets of EOC Handbook Templates were developed to accommodate the most common organizational structures in the NCTCOG jurisdictions: ICS/ICS-like, Incident Support Model, and Departmental. All three sets of handbook templates contain shared elements to further establish a similar approach for EOC handbooks despite differences in organizational and operational approaches. Development Guides and Customized ICS Forms were also developed for each of the handbooks sets.
