​Emergency Prep Activites

​Emergency preparedness for a manmade or natural disaster should be every citizens responsibility given the geography and climate of the Pacific Northwest.  We are all familiar with annual floods, forest fires, and the rare volcano plus the possibility of a Cascadia level earthquake.  However, given the expansion of technology, the fragileness of our communications and power systems, means every citizen needs to be prepared to survive, or get-through, an extended power outage.  Keep in mind, if you are out of power then so are the emergency services in a city or county.  Likewise, the fuel station, grocery store and cellular towers will likely be without power too.  Most EMS professionals suggest a family should be prepared to survice independently for more than a month.  I recommend many months given present circumstances.  Below you will find articles and postings on the present state of emergency created by Governor Kate Brown and the Oregon Surpeme Court ruling giving her dictatorship powers.
