'''Step 2 - Establish Crisis Event Infrastructure.''' Leaders create an MTE (Major Traffic Event) under which all closures will be created. The USA VEOC Admin team creates the necessary Discord channels including those required to monitor media feeds. They also post in Discord the updated closure form, closure sheet, and form filler script.
'''Step 3 - Notify Community & Request Editing Freeze.''' Leaders communicate that the VEOC is activated (via Discord, GHO, forums, etc.). All editing is stopped or suspended in the affected area so that closures can be placed as needed. (Any edit, which forces a change to the segment id, will need to be processed via a tile update (TU) before a closure can be added to that segment.)
'''Step 4 - Add Emergency Shelters to the Map.''' Waze crisis team emails leaders a google sheet with all known available shelters. Editors locate and add these them to the map via WME. ALL EDITORS All editors, regardless of rank or experience, are welcome encouraged to help locate shelters, verify/update information and determine their status.

'''Step 7 - Reopen Roads and Close Shelters as Needed / Reported.'''
'''Step 8 - Deactivate VEOC Event.''' Once the number of active closures has dropped low enough so that the local editors can take over an manage managing them, the VEOC is closed. A post mortem is conducted by leadership to discuss what improvements can be made to the process in advance of the next event. Closure statistics and data are available for evaluation (via the MTE event designation). Ideas which have been posted in the "# suggestions " channel are included in this review.)
