Airport EOC Management Practices--Synthesis

Provide a synthesis to the airport emergency management community which identifies and assesses best practices across various airport emergency operations centers (EOCs).

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

Through our work in ACRP 04-04B, we observed a variety of best practices, implementations, and tools used across the 10 airports in which we conducted exercises. While NIMS/ICS is generally followed for field response, EOC management has few doctrinal standards. There is great benefit to identifying and cataloging guidance on the subject, as well as the number of best practices in organizational models, job aids, processes, and technical tools used in airport and jurisdictional EOCs. Such a synthesis would be an excellent resource for airport emergency managers seeking to improve their current models and solve problems identified in after action reports.

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)

Provide a synthesis to the airport emergency management community which identifies and assesses best practices across various airport emergency operations centers (EOCs).
