Response and Recovery Branch
The Response and Recovery Branch of the Bureau of Homeland Security monitors day to day incidents and activities within the
State of Idaho that could require a State response, as well as the operational readiness of the Idaho Emergency Operations Center (IDEOC).
The IDEOC is the coordination center where the State of Idaho works with federal, local and tribal governments to direct
resources in support of response and recovery operations during an emergency or disaster. The Operations Section also manages
the Training and Exercise program, the Alerts and Warnings program and the 6 Area Field Officers who are stationed throughout the state.
