Emergency Services
Emergency Operations Center
Beaumont's Emergency Operations Center (EOC) responds to disaster situations affecting the city. The city maintains both primary and alternate Emergency Operations Centers, as well as a state-of-the-art mobile command center / EOC. When activated, the EOC is staffed by representatives from various city departments, allied agencies, and other special representatives as needed for the particular incident or disaster being managed.

The purpose of an EOC is to efficiently and effectively manage and direct the city’s response to any emergency situation that may arise by enhancing communications and maximizing the utilization of personnel and resources during a major incident. Beaumont’s EOC is operated using the Standardized Emergency Management System (SEMS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS) in accordance with State and Federal law and utilizing the city’s Emergency Operations Plan.

Emergency Operations Plan

This multi-hazard plan concentrates on management, concepts and response procedures relative to large-scale disasters. Such disasters pose major threats to life, the environment and property, and can impact the well-being of a large number of people.

The OES staff would like to encourage everyone to prepare for the next disaster. Luckily, preparing for one type of disaster prepares you for all types of disasters. It is our goal to exceed your expectations.
