The Clemson University Emergency Operations Center (CUEOC) is a location where the Clemson University Emergency Preparedness Coordinator or his/her delegate activates during a university state of emergency or other specified event. The purpose of the CUEOC is to gather resources (supplies, personnel or equipment) beyond those already on hand at the location of the scene of the Incident/Unified Command. The CUEOC is supported by a number of Emergency Support Functions (ESF) each of which specialize in the function to which they are assigned.
The CUEOC may also serve as an additional command and control facility for the Incident/Unified Command. The CUEOC may activate at one of several locations depending on the type of hazard, location of the incident or emergency or at the direction of the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator.
