A message from the Depoe Bay Fire District
The Depoe Bay Fire District, in cooperation with Lincoln County Emergency Management, Oregon Emergency Management and other local public safety agencies will be hosting Emergency Readiness Fairs and Earthquake/Tsunami Road Shows Saturday throughout Lincoln County. Residents are encouraged to drop in to the readiness fairs or plan to attend during the presentation by Althea Rizzo with Oregon Emergency Management.
Jenny Demaris Lincoln County Emergency Manager said there will be an opportunity to sign up and learn more about Everbridge, Citizen Alert systems, hosted by Lincoln County Emergency Management Volunteers. This will be an opportunity for citizens who do not have computer or Internet access to sign up and create their own profile.
The readiness fairs are set for Saturday, March 17th from 9am-12n at the Gleneden Beach Fire Station on Gleneden Beach Loop Road, north of Depoe Bay, and in Newport at City Hall on Highway 101 at Avery from 3pm-7pm.
The events will feature informational booths on the latest in tsunami and earthquake preparedness. There will also be general readiness stations with information about water purification, food storage and sanitation, family emergency disaster planning by the Red Cross and more.
And it’s all FREE!
