Office of Emergency Management
The Office of Emergency Management coordinates planning and response efforts for hazards that impact Gresham and its residents.
What's going on
January is Landslide Awareness Month
Landslides can move at avalanche speeds, rapidly enveloping or crushing anything in their path, including trees, boulders, people, cars and houses. Conversely, land may creep along, moving fractions of inches per year. Learn more about how to be prepared for landslides.
What we do
We provide information to help you protect yourself, your family, your home and your pets during emergencies, including tips on how to build an emergency kit, survive an earthquake and develop a fire escape plan.

The City has a natural hazards mitigation plan to reduce loss of life and property resulting from natural disasters. This plan identifies resources, information and projects that will help make Gresham residents less vulnerable.
