Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Cass County is just hours from opening its Emergency Operation Center. Wednesday morning, the center will activated at a minimal level. That means the center will be open during regular business hours.

Both the Fargo and Cass County EOC focus on flood relief. They work with local engineers, the sheriff department and even the state highway patrol to manage flood efforts, which can be critical.

Dave Rogness - Cass County Emergency Manager: "And without it, it would be pretty chaotic. It enables entities to work together, communicate together and coordinate together in a timely and efficient manner."

Once the flood risk rises, the emergency team will activate a higher level operation.
