The City of Bismarck has activated an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic today. EOC’s are activated and utilized during situations that go outside the span of control of a singular entity within the City, and provide for a single source entity for collecting, validating, analyzing, and organizing emergency information to provide for effective decision making. Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health has been doing a tremendous job of contact tracing, providing information to the public, and handling this unforeseen crisis with the utmost care and competence, and will now receive some supporting roles through the activation of the EOC.
Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health Director, Renae Moch alongside Assistant City Administrator, Jason Tomanek are taking the lead, and have departmental support throughout the city. This support will be crucial to plan, respond, and recover from this pandemic.
The goals and objectives of the Bismarck EOC are the following:
- Address and slow the spread of COVID-19
- Collaborate with Community Partners
- Educate the Public
- Continue to Support Essential City Services.
We are encouraging the public to follow Bismarck-Burleigh Public Health, and the City of Bismarck on our social media sites for essential information.
