When the county emergency operations center is activated, a joint public information center (JIC) is established. All official news about any city or county agency response will be generated from the JIC. The JIC will also conduct news conferences, when needed, from the Grand Forks Police Department media briefing room. 

Reporters can contact the lead public information officer or the county JIC by phone or e-mail during activations. Their contact info will be published at that time.
