[ARCHIVED] LCSO - Wildfire, Cascadia Earthquake/Tsunami Community Presentations

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Emergency Management Division, is excited to announce our Spring in-person community presentations. The in-person community presentations are free to the public and do not require registration.  

Lincoln County and our partnering Cities, Tribe and Public Safety agencies will be participating in the national level exercise, Cascadia Rising 2022, this June. As part of the exercise lead-up activities, we are supporting a Cascadia 4 Week Ready campaign – these in person presentations are the kick-off to our campaign. In conjunction with these presentations, we are also hosting our annual wildfire readiness presentations to refresh everyone on preparedness and response steps prior to our summer season. 

Presentation Announcement Information:

  • Presentation slides, recordings and the announcements can all be found on our County Emergency Management “What’s Happening Now webpage. 
  • The announcement with the dates, times, locations can be found at this link – Spring 2022 Lincoln County Readiness Presentations
  • Wildfire presentations are available for viewing now. The in-person presentations will be a combination of module 3 &4, property protection by understanding wildfire risk and emergency notifications and evacuations.
  • Cascadia Earthquake/Tsunami recorded presentations will be available early May.
