Representatives from Portland AFR met with staff from the Oregon Department of Emergency Management this winter to maintain and strengthen relationship between the two groups.

The Emergency Management for Cultural Resources (EMCR) team is a small group that came out of the larger 2011 AFR Salt Lake City Forum. EMCR consists of various Utah state agencies with a common goal of protecting and preserving Utah’s cultural resources.
The EMCR group has met six times this past year and has been working closely with the state Division of Emergency Management (DEM). The EMRC team toured the Emergency Operations Center earlier this year. The team is also working with DEM on a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program project, and has submitted a state mitigation plan to DEM.
