Event Details

The UDRC March 21 meeting focus will address how we as individuals and communities can be prepared when a wildfire or other natural disaster occurs in our near our area. Our speakers will be Sergeant Nathan Garibay, Deschutes County Sheriff Emergency Services Manager and PJ Johnson, Red Cross Community Volunteer Leader.

Sergeant Garibay will discuss:
How residents can prepare their homes and their families to facilitate a safer and more efficient evacuation.
The process the Sheriff’s office utilizes to determine how and when to evacuate.
Considerations for evacuation and contingencies.

PJ Johnson will provide information about the Red Cross efforts during and after a major catastrophic event. The Red Cross is generally one of the first responders when tragedy strikes providing shelter, serving meals, relief supplies, medical care, and recovery assistance. Handouts will be available with checklists for being prepared before the event occurs and the post event recovery.

The April 18 UDRC meeting will be a panel discussion focusing on the Deschutes River water flows and the efforts underway to improve the heath of the river.
