Interagency Emergency On-Site Control Unit
The Inter-Agency Emergency Management office is comprised of five key agencies:
- An Garda Siochana
- HSE South
- Local Authority - Cork County Council
- Local Authority - Cork City Council
- Local Authority - Kerry County Council
As part of a joint initiative by the Inter-Agency Emergency Management Office within the Major Emergency Management Region South, three Inter-Agency Emergency On-Site Control Units have been purchased. Their role is to enhance on-site co-ordination between the principal response agencies. It is envisaged that these vehicles will be used as the on-site co-ordination centre if a serious event occurs that requires the involvement of all the PRA's. They contain communication systems, an on-board meeting room, tent and generator.
