Previously (EOC) Emergency Operations Center

Our Emergency Operations Center or EOC operates on a case by case basis when emergent situations arise. For example: floods, pandemics, windstorms, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc.

Our EOC team is comprised of highly trained individuals within the Tseshaht community and Administrative staff that are responsible for a number of positions. Some of which include: director, communications, logistics, etc. Everyone has their job and knows their part.

In 2018, our EOC team was recognized with the Premier’s Excellence Award for our performance in Exercise Coastal response. Read more here.
