If you are on-call for the CMOC, you should have a go-kit prepared for a no-notice response.
This kit should include both personal items and supplies for you for at least 72 hours of onsite response away from your home or office. See the list at the end of the document for more details.
Food and beverages
For long-term activations, meals will be collectively organized for all EOC/CMOC staff by the Harris County Office of Emergency Management – Logistics Section (Food Unit). The Food Unit works to provide meals and snacks to meet a variety of needs, but if you have special dietary considerations, it is best to pack accordingly in your go-kit to meet those needs. You may bring personal drinks and snacks. If there is not a long-term activation or a CMOC-only activation, it is possible that you may need to provide your own food.
Working at the CMOC is a lot like camping. There are cots and showers available at the facility for sleeping and washing. No personal care items are provided. You are responsible for bringing your own personal care items.
Clothing for 3 days (Comfort is key. Most people wear a polo shirt and jeans.)
Shower supplies and toiletries (soap, wash cloth, towels, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, shower shoes, etc.)
Bedding (linen, sleeping bags, pillow, etc)
Other items (medications, hairbrush, deodorant, earplugs etc.)
At each CMOC station, there is a computer with two monitors and access to printers. You will have access to some basic office systems and supplies (printers, printer paper, fax, phone, staplers, writing tablets, pens). If you require other office supplies, please bring them with you.
Please bring any personal electronic devices, laptops, or other files you anticipate you may need. Such items include: laptop, cell phone, chargers for electronic devices, etc.
