USA: Resiliency 2025: Improving our readiness for the Cascadia earthquake and tsunami

This policy agenda from the State of Oregon's Office of the Governor aims to prepare the state to survive and recover from an expected 9.0 magnitude Cascadia earthquake and ensuing tsunami. 

This policy agenda focuses on six key strategies:

  • Continue state investments in seismic upgrades of schools and emergency services buildings throughout Oregon.
  • Develop a plan for the Critical Energy Infrastructure Hub to prevent and mitigate catastrophic failure and ensure fuel supplies and alternate energy sources are available to responders and the public.
  • Implement a statewide earthquake early warning system by 2023.
  • Work with local governments, community groups and the American Red Cross to ensure that 250,000 vulnerable homes have 2-week ready supplies in the next three years.
  • Strengthen local emergency management organizations and develop more robust logistical staging bases, local supply chains, and more earthquake and mass displacement insurance options. 
  • Update the Oregon Resilience Plan in 2021 to reflect current best practices, community input, and academic research, including a specific plan for the Oregon Coast.
