The Missouri Region D WebEOC Program was started utilizing Regional Homeland Security Funding in 2009. WebEOC is a web based crisis information management system allowing users to log on from any computer or mobile enabled device connected to the Internet. It is a method for real-time information sharing between organizations within and across disciplines and geographic regions.
The first Regional application of the WebEOC system was during the May 2011 Joplin Tornado Incident. Since this first use, the Region D WebEOC program has evolved using Lessons Learned and Best Practices from other Local and Regional Incidents/Events. In addition, enhancements from WebEOC Programs from across the nation have strengthened the Regional capabilities of the WebEOC Program.
