Standard WebEOC Boards

Standard boards allow you to track, display, and manage crisis information. The control panel below shows an example of the Boards section and how boards can be arranged.


A few of the most common boards are described in limited detail below. This set of boards is available with the Core, Professional, and Enterprise versions of WebEOC.

After Action Review

The After Action Review board allows you to document comments or recommendations after an incident and track the resolution of items.



The Checklist board allows you to create, edit, and view a chronological list of specific items that must be completed during an incident.


Damage Assessment

The Damage Assessment board allows you to assist with federal reimbursements, when applicable, by tracking detailed information on the individual and cumulative dollar loss as a result of damage to private and public property.


Event Reporting

The Event Reporting board allows you to document actions and major incidents taken by the personnel in the EOC. Event Reporting consists of the Activity Log and Significant Events views. An administrator may have embedded the Significant Events map in the board.


Activity Log

Activity Log allows you to document actions taken by personnel in your position during each shift. It allows users to track event types and details, statuses, contact information, position and name of those reporting, maps of the area, and more.

Significant Events

Significant Events is the equivalent of your major event log or incident journal. It is used to track events and activities and logs “who did what when.” This view provides real-time chronology of the actions taken during an event, from beginning to end, only showing major or significant log entries to help you maintain situational awareness and a clear operating picture. Entries in this board include: reporting authority, event type, date and time of the entry, location, priority level, and a narrative summarizing event information.

File Library

The File Library board allows you to upload, organize, and share documents and files across your organization. It also allows you to create private folders that can only be viewed by the position that created the folder.


Press Release

Every emergency response involves the media, and almost every emergency response organization has a Public Information Officer (PIO) responsible for the development and release of accurate and complete information regarding the incident.

The PIO usually establishes an area for the media that is away from the command post, separate from the EOC, and a safe distance from the incident scene. This area is used to provide news releases, responses to questions or requests, tour information, and so forth.


Resource Request/Task Assignments

The Resource Request/Task Assignments board allows for resource requests and task assignments to be submitted in the field via mobile device or in the EOC. The received requests can then be routed to the appropriate position, allowing staff to manage all related activity and updates on the status. During daily operations, the board allows for the management of non-emergency tasks and requests.


Road Closures

The Road Closures board allows you to document and track specific details on road closures, including a closure's status, location, damage, and suggested detours.



The Schedule board allows you to enter pertinent events and view visual cues as they progress through their cycle. It is also referred to as the Battle-Rhythm.



The Shelters board allows you to track shelter information and statuses. The standard list view displays the shelter’s name, status, occupancy, and more. It also indicates whether a shelter houses the general population, accommodates special needs, or is pet friendly.


Sign In/Out

The Sign In/Out board allows you to track who is currently on shift during an incident or day-to-day operations. The board also tracks hours worked by agency personnel.


Situation Report

The Situation Report board allows agencies to track published SITREPs and view the published reports. SITREPs (SITuation REPorts) are typically published at least once every 24 hours during an emergency. WebEOC provides a standard format that can be used based on the two common methodologies—Incident Command System (ICS) and Emergency Support Functions (ESF).

Functional areas within the emergency response organization update their portion of the SITREP, which then populates a master SITREP. The master SITREP can be viewed online and approved before release.
