The Cities of Lake Forest Park and Kenmore have created a joint Emergency Operations Center (EOC) as a part of the Northshore Emergency Management Coalition (NEMCo).
 
Earlier this week, staff from both cities conducted an EOC simulation drill by opening up the EOC at Northshore Fire Station 51 in Kenmore to support an active shooter event at the Lake Forest Park Town Center.

This is the first time the new EOC has conducted a functional exercise to test the capacity of both cities. 

“Without question, the exercise was a success. Employees from both cities worked together to solve problems, order supplies, and track resources”, said Chief Steve Sutton from Lake Forest Park.

 In 2018, NEMCo plans to continue this joint training to improve our region's response to all-hazard events that will likely affect the north end of Lake Washington.
