DHSEM Staff and State EOC Monitoring Statewide Weather

The Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management conducted a conference call with the National Weather Service this morning to prepare for weather conditions across the state.

The State Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is at Level IV virtual activation.  At this time there are no requests for assistance to local jurisdictions.  This means:

There is an expanding incident that may require state assistance.  The State EOC may open virtually or physically depending on the nature and complexity of the incident.

1.  Regional Field Managers are in contact with the impacted jurisdictions.
2.  State EOC Operations Section, Resource Unit and Situation Unit are activated.
3.  Resource Management (ESF-7) and Public Information (ESF-15) are notified and may be activated depending on the complexity.
4.  Notifications to impacted Emergency Response Coordinators (ERC's) are made to maintain situational awareness.  

Additional information on the State EOC activation levels can be found on our website at www.DHSEM.state.co.us/emergency-management/operations.
