What is an EOC? Who is on it?
The Emergency Operating Center is a method of bringing Village staff together in times of emergency. The purpose is to have the operational leadership in place at Village Hall to deal with events such as natural disasters, usually while they are occurring. It consists of the Village Manager, the Police Chief, the Village Engineer / Director of Public Works, the Building Inspector, a representative of the North Shore Fire Department and several others, or their designees. The EOC was activated early during the storm of July 22 and closed around midnight when the rain was over for several hours, public buildings secured, the streets were drained and people could get around freely. Village clean up efforts began early the next morning as residents began to deal with basement damage that also occurred during the storm.
