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.
A New Yorker magazine article, The Really Big One Opens a New Window. , addresses the possibility of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake in the Pacific Northwest. The article sparked intense public interest in emergency preparedness.
See these web pages for our detailed Emergency Plans, as well as suggested emergency preparedness actions, lists of resources, and much more. We also host public forums to further explain earthquake preparedness, answer questions, and empower our community with knowledge and resources.
