Tuesday’s snowstorm gave the City of Bend a chance to "test" their emergency preparedness. “In the last couple of years especially, the City has adopted a comprehensive operations plan. How we would respond to an emergency as a city. This is the first time we have actually activated our EOC, or our Emergency Operations Center.” The City of Bend's Justin Finestone says they have conducted exercises, but Tuesdays storm was the first use of the system. Finestone says if the situation warrants, the City many combine it's operation's center with the County or State. That did not happen Tuesday.
