From Oregon OEM and DOGAMI. A Community Disaster Cache is a stock of supplies designed to support a local population in its response to a disaster. Disaster caches take many forms and can be designed to accomplish different purposes. Along the Pacific Northwest (PNW) coast, numerous groups have developed disaster caches in various forms and have lessons to share. The goal of this Planning Guide is to distill such information to assist communities as they prepare for the next great earthquake and tsunami that will strike the PNW coast of Oregon and Washington. This Guide provides a four-step planning process: 1) Design, 2) Implementation, 3) Maintenance, and 4) Deployment, as well as case studies, strategies, templates, and sample budgets and operations plans.
