Business Preparedness

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. You may or want to create a full-scale preparedness program or some simple steps to protect your business. Either way, we’re here to help.


We encourage businesses to think of all the hazards they may face. Oregon has windstorms, wildfires, floods and winter storms. It is expected that a major earthquake will occur. 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 potential loss of 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.
