The volunteer staff of the Virtual Emergency Operations Center operates this site (1) to support state and local government agencies and other volunteer organizations with virtual emergency management services and (2) to manage its own operations during Local Emergencies declared by local officials, States of Emergency declared by the Governor, and Disasters declared by the President. Use of the Virtual EOC is established by Memorandum of Agreement between the Virtual EOC and the supported agency.

Information disseminated through this site is provided by recognized and authorized representatives of the supported agencies. It is intended for emergency managers and disaster response and recovery personnel. Therefore, knowledge of applicable emergency operations plans and standard operating procedures is essential to understanding the information posted. Individuals not affiliated with the emergency services of their communities should rely on official sources within their communities for information and not on this site.

Information is posted as provided, and every reasonable effort possible given the conditions of emergency operations is made to ensure that information is both accurate and current. However, you should read the date and time of the information to ensure that it is still applicable. The Virtual EOC assumes no responsibility for the accuracy, timeliness, or appropriateness of information provided by other organizations.
