Local emergency Info network launches

From Deschutes Co. Sheriff's Office,


Local, state and federal agency partners in Central Oregon are working together to provide the public easy and quick access to joint emergency updates and preparedness/hazard information. These local efforts started during the Two Bulls Fire in 2014 and are now being expanded as agencies launch the Central Oregon Emergency Information Network, a coalition of partners whose purpose is to provide emergency public information. The network will serve as Central Oregon's official source for multi-agency emergency updates, preparedness and hazard information.

In the event of an a multi-jurisdictional emergency, Central Oregon Emergency Information Network updates will be posted online at and on Twitter @COEmergencyInfo.

This network of partners is working together to ensure Central Oregon's residents and visitors have timely and accurate information. We hope this new tool helps to provide easy access to multi-agency emergency/preparedness updates.

The Central Oregon Emergency Information Network will be coordinating messaging related to public safety and governmental response to the 2017 Solar Eclipse.

The network's partner agencies include: local, state, and federal agencies involved in public safety, health care, land management and education.
