Cascadia: Oregon's Greatest Natural Threat

What can you do to ensure your business survives?

SEDCOR is partnering with local, state and federal emergency management agencies to deliver a series of educational sessions and workshops to help businesses improve their ability to recover from a major disaster.


Is your business ready?

Could your business survive without electricity for three months? Experts agree a major earthquake would likely cause critical services like drinking water and sewer and top-priority highways to be unusable for up to a year. While there’s much to do to improve the reliability of basic services, the government can’t do it all. Every company needs to be prepared for the impacts of a severe outage of critical lifelines--fuel, transportation, utilities, communications, water and sewer--as well as the potential loss of data.


This series will give you the tools you need to not only prepare your business for disaster recovery, but to play a critical role in helping the community recover from catastrophe.


Why are we doing this now?

Business leaders engaged in the state’s disaster planning efforts have indicated that in a major disaster, interruptions of infrastructure lasting longer than two weeks will put their enterprises at risk. We can expect some interruptions to last much longer...even up to 36 months or more. Business leaders need to prepare their facilities, IT and data, and their valuable human resources now in order to be ready for a major catastrophe.


"Most people don't plan to fail; they fail to plan."


We encourage businesses, community members and government agencies to look at the resources listed below.
