Colorado EOC Position Task Book Certification
The Colorado Emergency Management Association has entered a strategic partnership with the Colorado Office of Emergency Management, to manage the EOC Position Task Book Certification Program.
The EOC Position Task Book Certification Program was created because:
· There was no state-wide standard for EOC personnel.
· It creates a professional standard for deployment to and operating in an EOC.
· When disasters extend through multiple operational periods, additional EOC personnel are required.
The certification task book provides 4 levels of function.
· A local certification tool
· A job aid to use preparing to deploy into an EOC or during an EOC activation
· A training tool to base curriculum on, or to train from the document
· A state professional certification
The program will provide:
· A standard for certification to ensure the basics are present in EOC personnel deploying into a disaster area.
· EOC personnel certified on state systems and plans.
· Certified personnel who can provide relief for exhausted initial response EOC staff.
· A resource pool of personnel who can mobilized under the resource mobilization plan and fund.
· A professional standard that defines EOC operations as a critical and specialized skill of emergency managers.
· A person certified to execute critical tasks for the task books of EOC Manager, EOC Planning Section Chief, EOC Logistics Section Chief and EOC Emergency Support Function roles (ESF).
