Ketchikan Emergency Operations Center (EOC) Overview
The Ketchikan EOC was activated in March 2020 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 were held virtually during the COVID-19 emergency. Situation Reports were published by the EOC, as well as media releases announcing emergent information. 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 through the Office of the Borough Clerk.
The EOC completed its functions and ceased operations effective July 23, 2021. Links to the Alaska DHSS COVID case and vaccination pages, as well as CDC information, are available at the top of this site.
