This condition is set when no events monitoring activities that require establishing any EOC assignments beyond the daily staff working from their normal work desks.

An event has occurred or is expected to occur in the near future. The EOC shall be activated with OES and outside personnel requested from Human Resources. Outside agencies may be involved with the response. A disaster proclamation may have been issued. The scale and duration of the event is yet to be determined.

Full Activation Level:

An event has occurred that has caused extensive damage and requires a fully mobilized, multi-agency response. OES has committed full resources and EOC staffing shall be extensive. A disaster proclamation has been issued. EOC Operations may continue for an extended period of time.
