The WebEOC Incident Management Support (WIMS) Branch is responsible for the administration, design, development, training and implementation of the WebEOC software used to manage information and resources on both a daily basis and during the activation of the State Emergency Operations Center.

WebEOC Incident Management System was implemented for the State of Ohio, key partners and county emergency management agencies in 2011 and is administered by the WebEOC Incident Management Support Branch of the Ohio EMA as a means to track and analyze disaster information for better decision making before, during and after incidents.

WebEOC county and state agency training is an ongoing opportunity for state agency disaster response personnel and our county partners to learn or refresh their skills on the basic functions and usage of WebEOC. By providing this training on a regular basis, Ohio EMA receives feedback, which is used to make and implement new enhancements to the system and then deliver these updates through future trainings. As WebEOC continues to grow in Ohio, training needs will be assessed and new programs will be developed.

The WebEOC Incident Management Support Branch also provides support to the following:

  • The administration of the team verification process for the Swift Water, Canine and Hazmat technical advisory committees
  • The administration of the Ohio EMA Duty Officer Program
  • The Technical Advisory Committee Leadership group.
