Question

Is it true that the MAC Group replaces the primary functions of EOCs or other dispatch organizations?

Answer

False, the MAC Group does not replace the primary functions of EOCs or other dispatch organizations.

The Multi-agency Coordination Group or MAC Group serves as a policy-level body that facilitates decision-making among agency executives, designees, or administrators. They are responsible for supporting the distribution of resources and setting priorities, making cooperative choices, and allowing appointed or elected officials to make decisions. However, incident management, coordination, or other operations are not replaced by this group. The primary duty of managing incidents still falls within the purview of the incident commander.
