Emergency Preparedness

The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful regions in the world, and the rolling green hills of Southwest Portland showcase much of what is beautiful about it. But there are potential risks here as well. Not only the risk of potential catastrophic earthquake, but forest fires and other hazards as well. We need to be prepared.

This part of Portland is particularly vulnerable in the event of disaster. It could be days or weeks before help arrives. Food and water are essential. Please store enough of both to ensure the needs of your families and your pets. We’ve compiled a list of resources below to assist with emergency preparedness. Please feel free to send additional suggestions to board@glennbrookeridge.com.

Preparedness Information / Resources

If There’s an Earthquake

In the aftermath of an earthquake event, we will need to know who is and who is not OK. Glennbrooke Ridge residents are urged to check in at the association rec center building as soon as safely possible, so we can determine who might require assistance.
