Nobody knows when a natural disaster Is about to strike but it is important that those in leadership roles need to be ready at any moment of ever day. I will be creating Oregon's first ever Natural Disaster Task force. We need to have things in motion immediately after a natural disaster and we need a team dedicated and ready. Even for disasters that Oregon my never expect such as a Tornado or 6 feet of snow or a major fire within the mass-populated urban boundaries. The climate is changing and we need to be ready for the known such as earthquakes, heat waves and ice storms but we must also be prepared for the unknown.
Before a disaster strikes, I will establish an emergency response team; compile essential emergency management information; and assess the state’s resources and capabilities for dealing with an emergency.
