Seattle stands up Emergency Operations Center to provide support to the Ferguson Solidarity March and Rally

To help facilitate a peaceful march today, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray activated the City of Seattle’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 9:30 a.m. on November 25, 2014. The EOC will provide coordination amongst multiple departments during a solidarity march led by local faith leaders. This march is currently expected to start at 11:30 a.m. in the Central District of Seattle and is permitted by the city.

The City traditionally activates the Emergency Operations Center during parades, demonstrations, weather events and any time strong coordination across multiple City departments is beneficial.

The City of Seattle also activated the Joint Information Center (JIC) in support of EOC Operations. Please direct all media inquiries to the JIC using 206-233-5072.
