NEOC Military Staff

With this body NEOC has a personnel pool at its disposal consisting of well trained, qualified specialists who are ready for deployment within four to six hours of an incident.

The staff joins NEOC for a week's military service three times a year, in order to remain familiar with the procedures and systems. In an emergency there is no time to get to know the work environment. This applies especially because NEOC and its staff must take the lead and take decisions itself in the first and most crucial phase of an exceptional event, one that is characterised by great urgency and a deficiency in factual information.
