Red Cross Mobile EOC/van, photo 1N1UEC posted next to Red Cross Mobile EOC/van, photo 2A “next generation” American Red Cross mobile Emergency Operations Center (EOC) was on display last month at the State EOC in Framingham. The van features numerous computer and communications systems, including commercial satellite, 800 MHz trunking, conventional amateur VHF/UHF, and EchoLink and IRLP. The mobile EOC can act as a “network hub” to which other systems can connect.
