The REMTEC Training Committee has developed curriculum designed to train regional EOC/ECC personnel on the essential functions of an Emergency Operations Center. Emergency Management agencies from across the Portland Urban Area have cooperated to deliver these Regional EOC Training courses to professional Emergency Managers from across the region. The Regional EOC Training classes were developed to: 1) provide a common baseline of training for EOC/ECC personnel; 2) improve collaboration between agencies; 3) and, prepare local Emergency Managers for upcoming regional exercises.
