Preparing for Earthquakes

From the Oregon Office of Emergency Management:

Scientists are predicting that there is about a 37 percent chance that a megathrust earthquake of 7.1+ magnitude in this fault zone will occur in the next 50 years. This event will be felt throughout the Pacific Northwest. With the current preparedness levels of Oregon, we can anticipate being without services and assistance for at least 2 weeks, if not longer, when the Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake occurs. While this will be difficult to overcome, our citizens, businesses, schools, government, and communities as a whole can take steps to get prepared. Take action now by actively planning and preparing yourself and your community to be ready for two weeks for disasters.

Residents and businesses in Maupin should be prepared for future emergencies by signing up for the Emergency Alert system above. Individuals can also prepare by following Oregon’s emergency preparedness guidelines.
