A Refresher Course In Evacuation Procedures


We have yet to reach the end of the state of emergency declarations for both Oregon and California over the COVID-19 pandemic. And now we're approaching the hot-and-dry season and the rash of wildfires it typically brings.

Oregon Emergency Management is well into season plans for evacuations that may be needed. And it offers a refresher course to the public in the "Ready, Set, Go" or "1-2-3" sequence.

Notice that it is not a countdown, but a count UP... blastoff is on three, not one. Cory Grogan is a public information officer at OEM; he guides us through some helpful things to know.

Jackson County Emergency Manager Stacey Belt joins the discussion as well.
