Are you ready to evacuate if necessary? Emergency evacuations are a reality for some Lane County residents every year.
To help develop area-specific evacuation plans, Lane County has partnered with the University of Oregon’s Institute for Policy Research and Engagement to take a close look at six rural areas and to conduct a county-wide survey about residents’ preparedness for evacuations.
YOU CAN HELP! Please take a few moments to complete the survey.
The survey is available at www.lanecounty.org/evacplanning. It will remain open through March 31, 2021.
The six areas that are included in this round of evacuation planning are: Mapleton, Swisshome, Crow-Applegate, Lorane, Row River and the Eugene #1 RFPD. The templates developed will help us create more area-specific plans in the future.
