A major disaster could threaten the survival of your business. Even a minor disaster could hurt your bottom line. There are steps your business can take to be prepared. The information below can help you. You may want to take basic steps to protect your business. You may or want to create a full-scale preparedness program. Either way, we’re here to help.
We encourage businesses to think of all the hazards you might face. Oregon has windstorms, wildfires, floods and winter storms. We will have a major earthquake here someday. Cybercrime and other human-caused problems are also dangerous to businesses.
The physical damage from a full-fault Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake will occur west of the Cascades. However, every area of Oregon will be affected by the loss of virtually all fuel supplies and the unprecedented requirements for emergency response. Businesses need to be aware of the statewide impacts, and plan for how they will respond.
