Emergency Preparedness Campaign Week 3: Protect Family & Property - 09/22/23

(Astoria, OR) — The third week of Clatsop County’s “6-Weeks Ready” campaign for personal emergency preparedness is here and the theme is: “Protect Family and Property.” 

Each week a new preparedness focus is introduced and leads to the Great Shakeout earthquake drill on Thursday, Oct. 19.

“The Oregon HazVu geohazards viewer is a wonderful resource hosted by the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI). It’s a simple online tool that lets you put in an address to see if your home, school, work or surrounding area is in a tsunami evacuation zone, wildfire area, at risk for a landslide or other hazard areas,” said Justin Gibbs, Clatsop County emergency management director. 

“The more you know about your risk, the better able you can prepare for a disaster,” he said. “Although it is simple to use, we’ve put together a quick video that walks you through using the hazard viewer.”

Clatsop County’s 6-Weeks Ready campaign provides residents and businesses with an opportunity to increase preparedness efforts. The 6 Weeks Ready campaign ends with the Great Shakeout, and the County encourages everyone to register online to participate.
