Emergency Management

2016 Great Oregon Shakeout

Great Oregon Shakeout - October 2016

Lincoln County Emergency Management is urging citizens and businesses to register and participate in the 2016 Great Oregon Shakeout.  While the potential earthquake hazard depends upon your location, you could be anywhere when an earthquake strikes- at home, at work, at school or even on vacation. What we do now will determine our quality of life after an earthquake occurs.

If you, your family, your business/employer, or community group plan to practice your "drop, cover and hold on" response, we would love to have you register at http://shakeout.org/oregon/ . By registering you will assist your Lincoln County Public Safety agencies with documenting the progressive nature of our community and proving we are taking personal resiliency seriously.

As part of our continued preparedness efforts from September's National Preparedness Month, Lincoln and Benton County Emergency Management departments are hosting two Cascadia Community Presentations for our rural county residents and businesses. http://www.co.lincoln.or.us/sites/default/files/fileattachments/emergenc...
