The State EOC will be staffed by representatives from IDHS, the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Indiana State Police, the Indiana State Department of Health, the Indiana Department of Correction, the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission, the Indiana National Guard and the American Red Cross. Staffing may vary as the situation changes.
