Who Should Attend: Personnel who may be assigned to the State Emergency Operations Center (State EOC) as an agency representative or support staff.

Prerequisites: None required. However, it is strongly suggested that all Disaster LAN users have knowledge of the Incident Command System (ICS). Introduction to ICS (I-100) can be taken online at http://training.fema.gov/IS/. Additionally, all agency representatives should have a thorough understanding of all expectations of their home agency when assigned to the State EOC.
