  1. The trailer that the operation was held in is a mobile Emergency Operations Center (“EOC”) for the use of the San Bernardino County Sheriif, the San Bernardino County Fire Department and the City of Needles.

    The City is grateful for the time, effort and money that went into bringing this EOC to the state of readiness that it now has. It provides a platform for operations during an emergency incident and allows for interoperability between the various agencies working that incident.

    Special kudos to Reserve Deputy Dave Barlow for his contribution to making the mobile EOC a reality but also for his leadership during the amatuer radio demonstration.
