Franklin County Emergency Management follows Florida Emergency Operations Center Activation Levels. The State Emergency Operations Center is located in Tallahassee, serves as the central clearinghouse for disaster-related information, and requests for deployment of assistance.
Level 1 – Full Scale Activation – In a full-scale activation, all primary and support agencies under Franklin County Emergency Management are notified. The Operations Center will be staffed by Franklin County Emergency Management personnel and all Emergency Support Functions.
Level 2 – Partial Activation – This is an activation that may not require activation of every section, branch or Emergency Support Functions. All primary, or lead, Emergency Support Functions are notified. The Operations Center will be staffed by Franklin County Emergency Management personnel and necessary Emergency Support Functions.
Level 3 – Monitoring Activation – Level 3 is typically a “monitoring” phase. Notification will be made to those Emergency Support Functions who would need to take action as part of their everyday responsibilities. The Operation Center will be staffed with Franklin County Emergency Management staff.
