Emer. Prep.


The objective of this committee is to develop the Palisades Neighborhood Association’s Emergency Preparedness Plan, which includes promoting homeowner emergency preparedness, communication, training resources and neighborhood involvement.


The NEP (Neighborhood Emergency Preparedness) section of this website is intended to inform and help you and your household be prepared in the event of an emergency.  According to the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries Oregon is overdue for a significant earthquake.  This earthquake will most likely impair our access to clean water, groceries, electricity and gas for as long as three or four months.  Click here to see full article.

The intention for providing the information in this section is not to alarm but rather empower and unite our neighbors by listing resources and proven solutions to help every household, individually and as a community, be prepared in case of such an emergency.  Below is a summary of the contents of the NEP section of this website:
