On the topic of emergency preparedness, there are several agencies working on plans and holding drills on a more frequent basis now. Are there plans for a larger-scale rollout of emergency communications and public information sessions to clarify matters for the average citizen in Portland, Salem, Eugene, or other major cities in Oregon? Is the plan to manage the chaos when it arrives, or to provide a clear plan to the general public before it becomes chaos? How does one manage 75,000-1,000,000 people in a clear manner in the aftermath of an earthquake, volcano eruption, or other large-scale disaster? If we needed to evacuate an entire city, where would we send the people, and could it be done in an organized fashion? Most people have their own ideas, but I don't think there's a cohesive plan in place that could be considered common knowledge for the general population.http://www.pascherlunettes.com/
