PCR ICS Webinar

June 28, 2023


FEMA's recent release of the Information and Communications Technology functional guidance for emergency operations centers (EOCs) and incident management teams (IMTs) represents a sea change for communications units across the response and recovery sectors. The new guidance puts information technology and cybersecurity on the same level as interoperable communications and breaks the communications unit out into its own branch within ICS. In this presentation, we'll talk about the changes recommended, what effect they might have on EOC / IMT operations, the rationale behind and design of the new structure, and what might be expected in the future.


Presenter - Aaron Fox

Aaron Fox is an emergency management coordinator with Washington County, and is responsible for EOC communications. He is also an Oregon credentialed Communications Unit Leader (COML), a communication technician (COMT) with the Oregon State Fire Marshal's Blue incident management team, and a co-chair of the Oregon Statewide Interoperability Executive Committee (SIEC) Technology Committee. In other words, a real communications geek.
