The Oregon Office of Emergency Management coordinates and maintains a statewide emergency services system for emergency and disaster communications. OEM is divided into three sections: Technology and Response, Mitigation and Recovery, and Plans and Training. OEM awards grant funding to local governments, coordinates search and rescue efforts, and the State 9-1-1 Program. The Drought Council and Oregon Seismic Safety Advisory Commission (OSSPAC) also operate out of OEM.

If disaster strikes your community, you might not have access to food, water, or electricity for some time. By taking time now to prepare emergency water, food and disaster supplies, you can provide for your entire family.
Having an ample supply of clean water is a top priority in an emergency. A normally active person needs to drink at least 2 quarts (a half gallon) of water each day. You will also need water for food preparation and hygiene. Store at least an additional half gallon per person, per day for this.
Even though it is unlikely that an emergency would cut off your food and water supplies for two weeks, consider maintaining a supply that will last that long. You may not need to go out and buy foods to prepare an emergency food supply: you can use the canned goods, dry mixes, and other staples on your cupboard shelves. If you are unable to store this much, store as much as you can.
And don't forget about your pets! They need a kit, too
