Wildfire Preparedness

 

As Clackamas County approaches the thick of the wildfire season, we know preparedness is a top priority for our community. We want to learn from our experiences responding to wildfires, and are working to update our Emergency Operations Plan to better prepare for future disasters. Commissioners are very interested in hearing directly from you about your experiences during the recent wildfires and to offer suggestions for improved response. 

 

Commissioners want to hear the following: 

 

·     In terms of county government response to last year’s wildfires, what went right? 

·     How can the county and partners better serve the public when future wildfires break out?

 

In addition to the county commissioners, the following guests will join the conversation to briefly speak on how their respective organizations/departments have prepared for this wildfire season:

 

·     Daniel Nibouar, Clackamas County Disaster Management Interim Director 

·     Captain Brad O’Neil, Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office

·     Assistant Chief Brian Stewart, Clackamas Fire District #1
