Emergency Preparedness

This Emergency Preparedness web-book consists of three sections:

  1. Hazards Awareness
  2. Personal Preparedness
  3. Community Preparedness

Portland’s worst-case hazard scenario is a Cascadia Megathrust Subduction Zone earthquake (magnitude 9+). If you’re prepared for that, you’re prepared for any kind of disaster. And there is no doubt that it’s coming.

The City of Portland offers free Neighborhood Emergency Team (NET) training to those who live or work in Portland. [In just about any other city, this would probably be called Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT).]
