Portland Prepared

  The name doesn't quite do it justice.  It's not just for Portland, is it?

  Everyone can stand to be a little more prepared in the event of an emergency.  Emergencies are everywhere, after all.  There are floods and fires and storms a'pleanty in the region and Portland is just one city in the middle of it all.  We do have a couple of things going for us, though.  We have KBOO and we have the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management.  Teaming together, the PBEM will utilize KBOO to inform the citizens of the region in the event of any emergencies or 'Events of Note' that you should be aware of.

  We will also join you for a discussion of what everyday people, like yourself, are doing to anticipate, prepare for and overcome situations which are thrust upon us at the most inopportune times.

  Join us every Fifth Friday of the month for Portland Prepared as we talk about a few extra measures you can take to ride out a few of those emergencies just a little smoother.

What can I do to volunteer?

The City of Portland is proud to honor the volunteers who have commited themselves to be a part of the soulution when emergencies strike.

Earthquakes in Portland? Since when?!

Portland Prepared

The Pacific Northwest has long been an area stricken by earthquakes and tectonic forces.  The problem is... no one thought to Google that information as they were building cities along the entire West coast, 200 years ago.  Then earthquakes started to level the cities of California in the 1800's and, in the early 1950's, Portland learned that we were also in the same boat.

It's no longer a case of 'if' it will happen, but 'when' and now that we know that, what we choose to do about our own personal preparedness can determine how well we will fare in the days after the next 'event of note'.
