Preparedness Information
Get Prepared

The Oregon Office of Emergency Management would like you to think about BEEing Prepared. Now is a perfect time for everyone to evaluate your family emergency plan and update or establish emergency kits. Refresh yourself and family members of established exit routes, contacts, meeting places, etc. after a disaster. If family dynamics have changed, you will need to update the emergency plan. Double check your emergency kits! Add new items and check expiration dates and replace out of date items. Every car should have a kit too. Check out the links below for information and ideas.
