The City of Bismarck has activated an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic on Tuesday.
EOC’s are activated and utilized during situations that go outside the span of control of a singular entity within the City. They provide for a single source entity for collecting, validating, analyzing and organizing emergency information to provide for effective decision making, according to Luke Gardiner.

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
