The State of Washington has developed a new State ESF #6 Coordinator Position Guide Book to assist their mass care lead at the State Emergency Operations Center in performing necessary coordination during a response. This Guide Book will be tested during the State’s participation in the Cascadia Rising national exercise.
“This Position Guide Book lists the essential tasks for the state level ESF #6 Coordinator (alternatively referred to as the “mass care lead”) in the State Emergency Operations Center (State EOC) and/or a Joint Field Office (JFO). This guide serves as a ready reference and describes the basic tasks that must be performed through the ESF #6 desk at the State Emergency Operations Center (State EOC).”
“The ESF #6 Coordinator serves as the primary point of contact at the State EOC for all ESF #6 related matters. Additional ESF #6 positions are discussed in separate position books.”
