  8. Questions Your WebEOC function… did you use it? Could you use it? Look for the new Field Operating Guide coming out this Hurricane Season.. Your Flood Plan..was it a part of your Emergency Operations Procedure? How did it work out for you? ESF partners…experience counts, did you get any? If not, let us know. If you did, and it wasn’t what you thought it would be, perhaps we can fix that with training. Let RIEMA Operations know about it..through WebEOC.
