Increasing Overall Community Preparedness
The City of Eugene, City of Springfield, and University of Oregon are all working together to build a culture of preparedness in our community. Increasing our overall disaster resilience is the responsibility of every community member. By providing tools and resources to our community members, we are working toward one goal - overall disaster preparedness.
The recent New Yorker magazine article, “The Really Big One,” about the possibility of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake in the Pacific Northwest has sparked intense public interest in emergency preparedness. We host public forums to further explain earthquake preparedness, answer questions our community may have and empower our community with knowledge and resources.
