Washington County ORWARN Members to participate in Integrated Emergency Management Course

On April 16th, 2014, members of ORWARN will be participating in an Integrated Emergency Management Course (IEMC) for Washington County, Oregon.  This community-specific course will focus on post-Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake recovery planning.  Representatives from government and private employers will be located at the Emergency Management Institute in Emmetsburg, Maryland, while the Oregon Office of Emergency Management will activate the State Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) in Salem, Oregon.  ORWARN members will have an active role at the ECC, exercising activation of the ORWARN Operational Plan to simulate procurement of ORWARN resources to mobilize to the Washington County area.
