April At-Risk Populations Working Group Meeting

The Columbia County At-Risk Populations Working Group aims to address the needs of those in our community who may require additional emergency preparedness planning or response assistance due to a variety of conditions. The definition of at-risk populations, as determined by the group, is:

“Persons who because of age-related, cognitive, mental, physical, and/or social disabilities are unable to assist or care for themselves during an emergency and will likely require some type of assistance.”

Group activities include discussions on community plans and resources, reviews of facility planning procedures, sharing of “lessons learned”, and much more!

Join Us At Our Next Meeting:

Columbia 911, 58611 McNulty Way in St. Helens
