E O C

The Collier County Emergency Management Department manages the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), as well as the Multi-Agency Communications and Coordination Vehicle (Shown above - an EOC on wheels).  This department serves all of Collier County, including City, State and Federal Agencies within the County.  Essentially the EOC acts as a multi-agency coordinator before, during and after a major or disastrous event in the appropriate facility to meet the demands of the event.  The Vehicle above (MACCV) is used to meet the needs of a major event or smaller scale disaster such as a wildfire where the Agency needs to be near the event.  It only holds a few first-responder Agencies and about four radio operators.  The vehicle is equipped with satellite, VHF, UHF ( which is the frequency that the VRN operates on), Marine and Aviation radio equipment.

Thanks to Rick Zyvoloski and the EOC for giving the VRN a tour of the new facility.
