The NER Region Coordination Center (RCC) is the central point of contact to coordinate tasking received in response to a federally mandated disaster, for any missions that crosses wing boundaries, or when directed by the Northeast Region Commander (NER/CC) or designee. This provides our federal customers with a central point of contact to execute tasking rather than dealing with 9 separate points of contact.
The Region Coordination Center (RCC) Staff consists of the Director of RCC Operations, NER FEMA Regions I, II, & III Liaison Officers, and the RCC Exercise Coordinator. The Director has oversight over all RCC Operations. The NER FEMA LO is assigned to each FEMA Region and provide on-site interface with the assigned region during periods when the RCC is inactive; when the FEMA RRCC is activated the NER FEMA LO provides initial support and interface between the FEMA Region RRCC and the RCC Mission Base. The RCC Exercise Coordinator provides training exercises designed to ensure that the RCC has a fully trained staff to execute tasking received from the FEMA Region RRCC during a federally declared disaster.
