LA GRANDE – At 1400 hours today, Incident Command was activated by Incident Commander Elaine LaRochelle. We are preparing to support any patients sent our way with emergency services and medical care. We do not have any news on distribution of patients to be sent our way, however, we are prepared to assist in this emergency. We are cooperating fully with all regional partners, including our Media contacts, to do what we can to keep everyone informed. Our primary mission, however, is to provide emergency services and medical care to patients in need. Once we know more, we will issue an update.
At 3:45 PM today, Incident Commander Elaine LaRochelle deactivated the Hospital Incident Command System (HICS) in response to the I-84 MP230 multi-vehicle accident referenced above.
We appreciate the opportunity to support our partners in law enforcement and emergency management services. We are prepared to support all those in need of our services, and will continue to work with them if needed throughout the afternoon and evening. We do not have any more information at this time, but appreciate your patience.
