Emergency Operations Centre (EOC)
Providing an efficient and effective response to any emergency affecting port related operations is the goal of the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s Emergency Operations Centre (EOC). Operating under the internationally recognized Incident Command System (ICS), the port’s EOC is staffed by employees specifically trained in emergency operations. To facilitate an effective response, the port has developed standard operating procedures for a myriad of emergencies, which collectively form its emergency management plan. To maintain their expertise, EOC staff receive specialized emergency management training and participate in regular exercises designed to test emergency plans and procedures.
