Preparedness — It’s a Team Sport!

The Emergency Management Cooperative (EMC) of Washington County is committed to the development and maintenance of a countywide, integrated system to prepare for, respond to, recover from, and mitigate against disasters. The EMC members include Washington County, the cities of Beaverton, Cornelius, Forest Grove, Hillsboro, North Plains, Sherwood, Tigard, and Tualatin, Clean Water Services, and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue.

 

Washington County

In addition to local governments and special service districts, the EMC provides assistance to local businesses, schools, social service agencies, church groups, neighborhood groups, civic organizations, and youth groups.

The EMC takes a proactive approach to enhancing government preparedness and educating the public. Since government's ability to respond may be limited during disasters, individuals and families need to be prepared to manage on their own for up to two weeks.
