Lincoln County Emergency Management is encouraging residents, businesses, and community groups to participate in the 2020 Great Oregon Shake Out. While the official event takes place on Thursday, October 15th at 10:15 am, you can practice your drop, cover and hold-on during the days leading up to or directly after. The important part is to register if you do participate and practice.
By registering you will assist your Lincoln County Public Safety agencies by documenting the progressive nature of our community and demonstrating that we are working together to strengthen our community resiliency. We’ve included a graphic on annual summary of participants here in Lincoln County.
