Regional Joint Information Center



The region’s public information officers maintain a virtual joint information center (V-JIC), Capital Region Updates, to serve as a one-stop shop for area residents offering guidance and information during emergencies. The site links residents to emergency alerts as well as traffic and transit information. It features real-time news from their local governments through a regional news feed. The site also has localized weather from the National Weather Service and tips on how to prepare for emergencies.

The region’s public information officers regularly coordinate through COG, which helps ensure one regional message through many voices during emergencies. They work together to promote public education campaigns, such as preparedness tips in advance of winter and during National Preparedness Month in September.
