The City of Beaverton has launched a season of safety to encourage preparedness and promote safety concepts. The city-wide effort is an opportunity to build a safer community. We want residents and community members to get prepared, be safe and live Beaverton Ready.
Residents are encouraged to get involved. Whether it’s incorporating safe practices within your own home or working to promote safety in your neighborhood, let’s show how we can all do our part to keep Beaverton safe.
Take our Beaverton Ready Safety Pledge and share your safety ideas. #BeavertonReady.
In June 2016, the City of Beaverton and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) participated in a Cascadia Rising earthquake exercise. The multi-state effort was an opportunity for city staff and volunteers to simulate response to a major earthquake event and evaluate performance.
The exercise supported joint-response efforts associated with an anticipated 9.0 magnitude earthquake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone. The earthquake and potential resulting tsunami could be the most complex disaster scenario to face emergency responders in the Pacific Northwest.
