Storm Response - Critical Infrastructure

WebEOC

 

Reminder - If your water system is facing any issues, such as a failure of critical infrastructure, as a result of Tropical Storm Isaias or other event, please report on WebEOC.

 

WebEOC provides a real-time common operating picture and resource request management tool for emergency managers at the local and state levels during exercises, drills, local or regional emergencies, and/or statewide emergencies.

 

As a result of the three major storms in 2011-2013, a specific dedicated WebEOC screen was created solely for public water system use. It is important that public water systems utilize this method to report system status to the DPH during an emergency event through the state web-based Emergency Operations System.
