Hurricane IRENE, VEOC and the bunker

The Virginia Department of Forestry and Fire Programs are working local requests with the local EOC as well as staffing the VEOC (Virginia Emergency Operations Center) at the ESF 4.  Forestry has nearly 50 employees directly involved with the incident responding to numerous requests for assistance. The Dept of Fire Programs is also responding to requests for support from various local fire departments.
Many times there are plenty of pictures of field operations and I am sure this incident will not be different. When we start getting in some I will post those. But below are several pictures from the "inside" behind the scenes work at the "bunker"
