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.
