Deputized Disaster Coordinator Logistics Communication MPDC/CPDC Administrative Secretariat a. Descriptions and Functions An Emergency Operation Center is a location or facility from which centralized emergency management can be performed for an organization. The primary sole of the EOC is to provide centralized direction and control of all emergency operations, communications and warning, and consolidation. Analysis and dissemination of damage assessment data; issuing emergency information and instructions including press releases; and facilitate the coordination of resources needed to mitigate the effects of the emergency. b. EOC Location The EOC is located in the (Command Center), Tarlac City Hall D. Criteria for Activation of EOC The Emergency Operation Center (EOC) is normally activated only for substantial events when the establishment of resource management priorities is required. The EOC will be activated at the discretion of the CDCC Chairman. The following criteria indicate when an EOC should be activated: - There is an imminent threat of such destruction, requires the combined and concentrated effort of CDCC and Local Community to control such threat - Resources beyond local capability are required - The emergency is of long duration because of widespread destruction - Activation of an EOC will be advantageous to the successful management of an emergency - A local or state emergency is declared
  23. 23. E. EOC Concept of Operations The EOC is operated as follows: 1. The CDCC Chairman based on the best available information will order the activation of the EOC. Depending on the situation, a partial or a full activation will be ordered. a. Partial activation will be ordered when emergency is minor and requires relatively few personnel to handle the situation. Such situation might vary from weather warnings or during operations resulting from minor damages of weather, fire, car accident, etc. b. Full activation will be ordered when the emergency or disaster falls under section D above. 2. The type of incident, agencies involved, objectives, strategies and magnitude of the emergencies will determine the organizational structure of the EOC. If partial activation of the EOC is ordered, the OIC at his/her discretion may appoint a single individual preferably a representative from the department concerned, to perform the coordination functions of each respective department or agency. Additional staffing will be required from each respective department or agency should the emergency escalate to a wider magnitude. 3. Upon employment and activation of the Incident Command Post, EOC monitors disaster activities and respond to request from the On-Scene Commander. 4. Depending upon the severity and magnitude of the disaster, the EOC may have to operate for an extended period of time. Therefore, each department or agency assigning personnel to the EOC should allow for additional relief personnel on a shift basis. F. Flow of Events EOC Activation may be initiated through a series of events, a single incident may escalate depending on its impact on the locality. The events that could result in activation of the EOC are described below: a. Emergency - communication is notified of an emergency or incident. b. Depending on the type/nature and extent of the emergency. Emergency will initiate appropriate notification procedure including the notification of the CDCC Chairman. c. Upon arrival at the scene of the emergency responder, the senior in command should act as a temporary On-Scene Commander. The
  24. 24. temporary On-Scene Commander should assess the situation immediately upon arriving at the scene. d. The temporary On-Scene Commander should notify and brief the CDCC Chairman whether activation of EOC is required. e. Based on the information received, the CDCC Chairman will decide whether activation of the EOC is required. f. No decision means that the emergency responder will perform their standard department rescue procedures until termination of the incident at the scene. g. If Yes, the CDCC Chairman should activate the EOC, whether partial or full activation, he/she should designate the CDCC Vice-Chairman or Executive Officer to be the Officer-in-Charge of the EOC. h. Designated On-Scene Commander shall be notified to proceed to the scene and establish a command post. Upon assumption of command, the temporary On-Scene Commander is relieved of his responsibilities and assumes his duty as a Team Leader. i. Upon designation of an OIC, the OIC will notify the designated staff to report to the EOC. j. Upon arrival of the EOC Staff, the EOC is now activated. Notification and coordination of specific functions with the On-Scene Commander can commence. G. Basic Resources/Equipment Command Center should have certain basic resources/equipment, either in place or capable of being set-up quickly, as follows: - Conference table (6-8 seater) - Wall clock - Sizable map of the Philippines - Map of the local area (Calamity location) - Status Board or Situational Display System - Pen, pencil, accent marker, writing pads, tapes, pointer, paper clips. wastepaper basket, etc. - Blackboard and/or whiteboard with chalk/markers and erasers - Extra copies of Disaster Manual - Telephone and Telephone Directory - Communication equipment - Base and hand held radios - Checklist of responsible persons including addresses and telephone numbers - Available equipment and logistics - Typewriter or Computer
  25. 25. VIII. STAGES OF PLAN ACTIVATION There are different levels of emergency condition(s), which warrant different levels of response to implement said plans. Level I - The plan will not be activated in the event of a regular emergency which may require the deployment of one or a combination of response of Law Enforcement, Fire, Ambulance, Public Works, or others in order to limit damage to persons, properties on the environment. In such cases, normal Departmental procedure will be applied. Level II - The plan or part of the plan may be activated in an event of an unusual or major emergency, which will require action and coordination beyond normal procedure, in order to limit damage to persons, properties or the environment. The capabilities of the local government agencies are not exceeded but the incident requires assistance of more than Law Enforcement, Police, Fire, Ambulance, and Public Works personnel. Such incident may involve flooding, dangerous goods, extensive oil spills, multiple fire, multiple injuries, extensive displacement of residents, evacuation of the public, or other of the same magnitude. Level III - The plan will be put into effect in the event of a major emergency with any or all of the following conditions: a. The emergency condition has exceeded the emergency response capabilities of the local government agencies, assistance will be sought from the Regional and National Disaster Coordinating Council, the public and private organizations, and other support agencies as required and available. b. The emergency is long lasting, has traumatic impact on residents or has widespread damage to property, to the environment, or to the local economy as a result of natural or man-made hazards. IX. COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK One of the critical requirements for an efficient movement of rescue responders, assimilation and dissemination of information from disaster sites to Authorities / Agencies involved and to the public at large, is the consolidation of the CDCC communication network. Without proper communication, the effectiveness of the plan would be severely limited.
  26. 26. Radio Communication Network Available radio communication network for average use in cases of emergency or disaster: A. Barangay Network (Bravo Net) Radio Network: 1. Emergency Frequency 2. Terminal Base 3. Maintenance Base 4. Telephone Description and Uses: 1. Emergency Frequency – Is the primary radio network allocated for use during an emergency. This frequency is linked to all primary rescue groups namely: Bureau of Fire Protection, PNP, EOC, Public Utilities Department, Special Response Team, Traffic Management Group and Philippine National Red Cross. 2. Terminal Base – Is the primary radio base for terminal operation and is linked to all terminal employees responsible for the smooth operation of the terminal complex. X .

CDCC in cooperation with local civil and / or private organizations, other support agencies or any combination thereof. 3. CDCC in combination with regional or national government agencies. B. Direction and Control The EOC provides a centralize direction and control of any emergency operations, communications and warning, and issues emergency information and instructions including operational courses of action needed to mitigate the effects of the emergency or disaster, and most of all, serves as a central location for overall coordination and facilitation of required emergency resources.
  27. 27. C. On-Scene Coordination Overall coordination and direction of all response activities at the disaster scene shall be accomplished through the On-Scene Commander. He / She reports to and receives advice from the CDCC Chairman or his duly designated representative.

Furthermore, although some work is currently being done to understand earthquakes in more detail, no earthquake prediction can yet be issued with confidence and, hence, the only way to prevent disaster caused by earthquakes is to anticipate and prepare for them. WHAT TO DO BEFORE AN EARTHQUAKE ( Source: PHIVOLCS ) 1. The key to effective disaster prevention is planning. Evaluate the structural soundness of the buildings and places wherein you frequently stay. Determine whether the site is traversed by a ground fracture, technically known as fault, which may give way or cause buildings to fail. Note the presence of other potential sources of hazards due to secondary effects of earthquakes like steep hillslopes, hanging heavy objects, dams, storage tanks, falling debris and others. After this evaluation process, you shall be more aware of the hazards which need attention or consideration. 2. Prepare your place of residence for the event. Most causes of injuries during earthquakes are from sliding and falling objects. Latches should be installed on drawers, cabinets and cupboards. Heavy materials should be identified and placed in the lower compartments of cabinets. Breakable items should be secured while harmful chemicals and flammable materials should be stored properly to minimize the possibility of falls or spills.
