From Governor Kate Brown:
“It has been over three years since the Oregon Office of Emergency Management first published the Cascadia Playbook. Since then, the Playbook has improved the resilience of state agencies and serves as a national model for preparedness and readiness. We have also learned quite a bit since the first edition of the Cascadia Playbook was released, and have gained important new insights from navigating both real-world events and training exercises.”

“The Playbook accomplishes three essential functions:

  • Prescribes the mission assignments to organize the efforts of the many partners within emergency response and recovery.
  • Provides a checklist of time-based actions to be accomplished by teams of subject matter experts working collaboratively as Emergency Support Functions.
  •  Supports and provides organizational clarity to existing plans developed by the emergency management community across Oregon.”
