Emergency Preparedness

Updated: Dec 23, 2023

It is important to raise awareness about the importance of preparing for disasters and emergencies that may hit Eugene at any time. In an emergency event, local services will also be impacted.  Community members would be relying on themselves, their neighbors and their neighborhood associations to help them to meet basic needs during the emergency.



Ready NW Eugene has completed the following resource document.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1y6I3vRxt75dYgmn_RUTtOV4uUxJeiIlgQdahrec5AJ0/edit On this list you can find a myriad of sources of information related to emergency preparedness and disaster recovery.  As we have seen in many fast burning fires, it is imperative to be prepared for emergencies and make sure to have a plan in place for family, friends, and neighbors to ensure a quick evacuation. 


The links in the Resource document will help you prepare for a disaster:  

The first section relates to Foundational Emergency Preparedness Sites which are federal, state, county, and city oversight.


The second section relates to Emergency Preparedness Tools, Programs, and Resources (including local) which have links for different category types such as Prep, Alerts, Evacuation Planning, First Responders, and more.


The final section relates to Emergency Specific Resources (including local) such as: 

  • Fires, 

  • Air Quality and Weather,

  • Earthquake, 

  • Volcanic Eruptions, 

  • Dam Safety and/or Flooding, 

  • Pandemic

  • Power Outages, and

  • Toxic Chemical Spill/Leak/Fuel Tank Storage
