To Whom It May Concern:

According to a press release (https://news.northwestern.edu/stories/2018/august/northwestern-university-city-of-evanston-announce-agreement-to-share-emergency-operations-center/) Evanston will be sharing Northwestern's Emergency Operations Center. The article states: "The City and the University signed a Memorandum of Understanding on a one-year agreement for the shared use of the facility, beginning on Sept. 1, including an option to be renewed annually."

Pursuant to the Illinois Freedom of Information Act., I hereby request the following records:

- a copy of the Momorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Evanston and NU for use of the EOC
- all emails between the provided email addresses (see attached file) and "northestern.edu" addresses containing any of the following terms "Emergency Operations Center", "EOC", or "Crisis Management Team", between August 1, 2017 and August 16, 2018.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

William Pierce
