Snowy EOC

Washoe County, Reno, and Sparks recognize the need to have a single, permanently established, ready to operate Regional EOC location to perform individual and/or integrated EOC response services in support of jurisdictional emergencies or larger regional emergencies and disasters involving two or more jurisdictions.

The goal of the REOC is to provide a single, secure and safe location for the participating agencies to support public safety, field Incident Commanders, determine situational status, coordinate and collaborate response strategies and activities, make critical decisions and initiate policy level support for critical decisions when needed during emergency and disaster situations.
