Maps rate risks and show resources
What’s the earthquake risk in your neighborhood? Is your home or business located on a flood plain? To find out the answers to these questions and more, check out new maps created by the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management.
The maps identify natural hazards throughout the city. They show known earthquake faults, flood plains and other dangers, including hazardous material sites, steep slopes and forested areas at risk of fire.
The maps also show community resources – such as evacuation routes and key transportation corridors used during emergencies, hospitals, county clinics, schools, fire stations and police facilities – within each neighborhood coalition area.
Each map can be downloaded from the bureau’s website at portlandoregon.gov/pbem. Larger versions are available for viewing in person at the following neighborhood coalition offices:
Central Northeast Neighbors, 4415 N.E. 87th Ave.; East Portland Neighborhood Office, 1017 N.E. 117th Ave.; Neighbors West/Northwest, 2257 N.W. Raleigh; North Portland Neighborhood Services, 2209 N. Schofield; Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, 4815 N.E. 7th Ave.; Southeast Uplift Neighborhood Coalition, 3534 S.E. Main; and Southwest Neighborhoods at the Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 S.W. Capitol Hwy.
