President David Palmer was fishing in Oregon with his son (and Secret Service agent Rosser) during a vacation at Lake Oswego. After receiving an urgent message, he went to the Northwest Regional Operations Complex, also located in Oregon. From there he handled the terrorist crisis posed by Second Wave and elements in his own government which sought to dictate American policy, as well as his own temporary removal from office by Vice President James Prescott.
