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
July Awareness Topic: Hot Weather
Heat kills by pushing our bodies beyond their limits. During extreme heat evaporation is slowed and the body must work extra hard to maintain a normal, healthy temperature. Extreme heat can be life-threatening if the proper precautions are not taken.
Learn more about hot weather emergencies.
