Ketchikan Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Overview
The Ketchikan EOC has been activated to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in Ketchikan under the National Incident Management System (NIMS) for managing emergency response activities. The EOC operates under the Incident Command System (ICS) and includes a coordinated multi-agency response with members from local municipal governments, health care providers, and other local, state and federal agencies.
The EOC meetings are held virtually during the COVID-19 emergency. A weekly Situation Report is published by the EOC, as well as a weekly media release and additional releases as emerging needs arise. EOC media releases and situation reports are provided at the links on the lefthand menu. Additional EOC records are available to the public upon request.
