The Logistics Section consolidates the logistics services, resource management, administration, telecommunications, information technology/management, and facilities management functions for the Division. The section also provides program / project management of volunteer and donations management, alert and notification systems, certified response teams, and mutual aid.
The Logistics Section provides facilities, transportation, supplies, equipment maintenance and fueling, food service, communications, and medical services for incident personnel.
Resource management involves coordinating and overseeing the application of tools, processes, and systems that provide incident managers with timely and appropriate resources during an incident. Resources include personnel, teams, facilities, equipment, and supplies. Generally, resource management coordination activities take place within EOCs. When they are established, multi-agency coordination entities may also prioritize and coordinate resource allocation and distribution during incidents.
The Logistics Section adheres to the principles of Resource Management as outlined in NIMS.
Major programs include:
Logistics Section Mission
The Logistics Section shall provide quality logistics support and resource management by assisting with the provisioning of equipment and services in the areas of budget, logistics, administration, communications and information management. We will support Arizona state agencies and local emergency management organizations to reduce the impact of disasters on persons and property.
Logistics Section Vision
The common vision of all Logistics Section members will be to provide exceptional logistics and resource management support to our customers to enable them to be disaster ready at all times.
General - The Logistics Section will be available for recall on a 24-hour basis, maintain and update applicable plans and participate in all SEOC exercises and training activities. The section will maintain all ADEM facilities and infrastructure for emergency operations by ensuring that equipment, supplies, materials, and services are readily available.
Disaster Response and recovery - The Logistics Section will become operational within the SEOC in accordance with the SEOC Standard Operating Procedures. The section will sustain quality logistics support operations for the duration of the incident period.
In addition, the Logistics Section will:
Respond to 100% of requests for IT, homepage and EIS programs support within one working day and provide a fix in order to minimize ‘downtime’ to no more than 24 hours. In the event downtime will exceed 24 hours or in case of a
catastrophic loss (i.e. lost server), backup systems will not result in a reduction of operational capabilities.
Maintain telecommunications systems and messaging activities to provide external and internal SEOC communications 24 hours a day and be able to sustain for the duration of the incident. Maintain a statewide interoperable communications capability using fixed and mobile facilities.
Provide expert resource management guidance and logistics support to all federal, state, tribal and local emergency response agencies during disasters and emergencies. Maintain 100% accountability of all logistics supplies including, availability, distribution, tracking and costs of resources. In coordination with the Plans and Operations elements, estimate future needs of resources based on the disaster’s changing dynamics, and, recover and reconstitute all remaining resources at the end of the emergency/disaster.
Provide finance support as needed. Submit an accurate estimate of costs to finance/recovery no later than 30 days after termination of the emergency and submit a list of actual costs no later than 60 days after the emergency.
