The Best Prepared Town in America (Hint, it’s in Oregon!)

James Roddey

There are three small, very vulnerable communities in Oregon that are light years ahead of almost everyone in the United States when it comes to being prepared for disasters. These communities have formed a non-profit organization that includes hundreds of active volunteers, with committees responsible for creating short and long term sheltering and evacuation strategies; water storage; emergency communications; pet preparedness and sheltering; emergency supplies and storage and; an online emergency database and resources center. They’ve even established a nationally registered Medical Reserve Corps. They’ve done it all on a shoe-string budget and love to teach other communities how to do it. Learn about this remarkable group of volunteers and how you can duplicate their success in your communities with James Roddey and the Emergency Volunteer Corps.
