Disaster Preparedness

Baker City Emergency Operations Plan available here.

 In the event of a major disaster in our town, the Baker City Police Department and local agencies have an emergency plan and are prepared to evacuate the affected areas in the most efficient way.

The city is divided by evacuation zones and it is important that every citizen be aware of which zone they are located.

There are multiple ways to notify our community in the event of a disaster, necessitating an evacuation.

• City Siren (tested every Friday at noon)

• Local Radio Broadcast

• Reverse 9-1-1 (see below) 

Baker County launched an Emergency Public Notification System ("Reverse 9-1-1") known as Baker County ALERT.

Baker County ALERT is a free service that allows you to sign up and recieve notifications about emergencies that may affect the locations you care about. This service allows emergency response agencies to send out accurate and up-to-date information about incidents that may have a significant impact to residents.

These emergency alerts could be related to specific hazards that require action to taken such as evacuation, shelter in place, boil water, etc. In addition to receiving information on your wireless device, you may also sign up to receive notification on a traditional landline phone. Adding your address will provde you with geographically targeted alerts when an emergency impacts your specific location.

These alerts are provided free of charge, however, standard text messaging rates and other charges may apply. Apart from this sign up, you can also receive alerts through AlertSense App for Android and Apple devices. More information is available at the link below:
