EMS Tactical Operation Center
During a disaster EMS personnel may respond from all parts of the state to assist in emergency evacuations, 911 support, shelter operations, or other needs in impacted areas. The EMS Tactical Operations Center manages the incoming resources and coordinates response to deploy assets where they are needed. Ambulance crews responding under the state surge contract should be familiar with and have the equipment to communicate with the EMS TOC. The EMS TOC Radio Plan outlines the available talk-groups and their appropriate use during an event.
The Louisiana Emergency Response Network works in collaboration with the Louisiana Bureau of EMS and the state surge contractor to respond to state disasters. All forms required for this response are located on the Bureau of EMS Website. Click here to access these forms.
