Levels of Readiness
The Monroe County Emergency Operations Center (EOC) operates at one of three levels of readiness in order to carry out its mission. These levels are described below and are patterned to closely match the Florida Division of Emergency Management (DEM) EOC activation levels to maintain consistent definitions.

Activation Levels
Full Activation
In a full-scale activation, the EOC is activated on a 24-hour schedule due to an imminent threat or occurrence of a disaster.

Partial Activation
Partial activation is typically limited agency activation. Emergency Management staff and Emergency Support Function (ESF) lead agencies with a role in the incident response are activated and required to report to EOC.

Monitoring
Is typically a monitoring and assessment phase where a specific threat, unusual event, or situation, is actively monitored by the Emergency Management staff.
