Hood River Emergency Management created this in depth guide to help YOU and YOUR FAMILY prepare for emergencies and disasters.
Hood River County Emergency Management is a regional resource - we partner with Cities, Counties, Fire Departments, 911, schools, medical, health and other first response agencies Gorge-wide, to prepare our region for large scale emergencies and disasters.
We are the direct link to partner with, and access additional regional, state and federal support.
We manage grants, disaster planning and programs that enhance our county's readiness and response. We help citizens and businesses prepare for emergencies and disasters.
Citizens and businesses are encouraged to be self-sufficient for at least 3 days - up to 3 weeks, should an emergency or disaster occur. We are here for you - and we also appreciate you doing your part to prepare your family for emergencies.
Hood River County developed this Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan through a regional partnership funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency's Pre-Disaster Mitigation Competitive Grant Program. FEMA awarded the Mid-Columbia Gorge Region grant to support the update of natural hazards mitigation plans for eight counties in the region.
This project would not have been possible without technical and financial support provided by Mid-Columbia Council of Governments.
We will be updating this plan in 2017.
