Following Hurricane Dorian, Participants were asked to provide feedback on their experiences to be compiled into a Hurricane Dorian After-Action
Feedback from participants noted an improvement in communications and information coming from OES and the WCEOC. As information came into the WCEOC,
it was quickly compiled and then sent out to all stakeholders. City of Goldsboro City Manager, Time Salmon, noted that the municipalities were not receiving information at the same time that County Agencies were. This was corrected by adding all municipal leaders to the e-mail list. This list allows OES to send information to all stakeholders County-wide.
Additional feedback reported that the WCEOC setup worked well. The WCEOC tables had been set up for Emergency Supp01t Functions (ESF) to be grouped
together into workstations. These workstations are set up for Work Groups to first work amongst themselves to address needs and responses before requests are made to the State EOC. The WCEOC was set up with the following workstation: Command Group, Call Takers and Public Information Officer, Fire and EMS Group, External Agency Group (SJAFB, FEMA, NCNG, NCDEM, etc.), Shelter Group, Information Group, and Law Enforcement Group. The intent to set up the new WCEOC in the same manner.
Cooperation between OES, Department of Social Services, the Health Department and the Public School District went well in identifYing locations, the
opening and close of shelters. The Health Department and the Department of Social Services reported no major issues at either of the County's shelters. Facility Services did a great job of delivering shelter supplies and equipment prior to shelter openings.
2 - Acquisition of shelter trailers. By acquiring shelter trailers, the County would improve the delivery of supplies, the set up and cleanup of
shelters. Pre-loaded trailers would be dropped off at pre-designated locations for planned events and allow quick delivery in emergency events. Once the shelters are opened, supplies could be removed as needed. This would save valuable time and manpower hours as well as improve efficiency in opening, closing and cleaning.
