The Multnomah County Office of Emergency Management (MCEM) coordinates training and exercise opportunities designed to increase disaster resilience and response readiness across Multnomah County in preparation for potential emergencies and/or disasters. Training and exercise opportunities bring community stakeholders together from local emergency management, local and state government, public safety/first responders, nonprofit and volunteer organizations, and the private sector. By validating emergency plans and procedures, stakeholders are able to identify strengths and areas for improvement. Well crafted exercises and trainings based on identified gaps prepare personnel to respond effectively to and recover quickly from real world incidents.
