ABSTRACT

Florida Case Study - WebEOC   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the Summary: "The Florida Department of Emergency Management (FDEM) used preparedness grant funds (EMPG) to expand its WebEOC crisis management system, a shared statewide communication software platform that can implement standard emergency management processes to maintain a common operating picture during large-scale events. Counties and local jurisdictions in Florida used various funding methods to fund WebEOC (SHSP [State Homeland Security Program], UASI [Urban Area Security Initiative], EMPG [Emergency Management Performance Grant], EMPA [Florida Emergency Management and Preparedness Assistance] and state and local funds). FDEM tested WebEOC integration during the 2018 hurricane exercise (HURREX), which was based on a Hurricane Irma-type scenario. Exercise participants used WebEOC to create and update missions, train new employees, and test the execution of emergency operations procedures consistent with the hurricane scenario."
