Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos Islands, October 16th, 2015 (DDME) - When disasters strike will TCI’s first response agencies be able to handle a large scale emergency requiring a multiagency response? Can the agencies needed to coordinate this multiagency disaster effectively coordinate and share resources? How long can the staff of any one agency sustain a 24hour/ 7 days a week EOC? What are the roles and responsibilities of responding agencies in the National EOC? Where will the extra resources come from to effectively operate an EOC? These are some of the questions that national response agencies often seek answers to. One method to find the solutions to these questions is for agencies to train together so that they learn to share both personnel and resources before a disaster strikes.
