Preparing for Emergencies


There's always the possibility that a natural or human-caused disaster could affect us here in the Pacific Northwest. The Oregon Office of Emergency Management encourages residents to be prepared to be on their own for a minimum of two weeks. This will help emergency responders focus limited resources on injured and other vulnerable populations immediately following a disaster.

Remember, emergency preparedness is a shared responsibility. Here is some information to help you prepare, and stay safe, in the event of an emergency.
