Oregon Office of Emergency Management COVID RESPONSE

The Oregon Office of Emergency Management (OEM) has a website where Oregonians can donate supplies, volunteer and get real time information about COVID-19.

OREGON COVID-19 RESPONSE

The website allows Oregon residents to donate or sell supplies, offer services or volunteer and has “surveys” website visitors can fill out to coordinate pickup of offered items and services.

Those with something to sell can engage in a business relationship with the state by filling out a form. OEM is looking for masks, gowns, gloves, hand sanitizer, boot/shoe covers and anything else that can help fight the virus. The same form is used for donations.

GOODS AND SERVICES OFFER FORM

Low-risk individuals who wish to volunteer with an organization can complete a volunteer interest form. Remote and low-contact hands-on volunteer opportunities are available. Examples of types of volunteering include:

  • Healthcare
  • Transportation
  • Delivery
  • Administrative
  • Heavy lifting/carrying
  • Answering and making phone calls
  • Childcare
  • Petcare
  • Instruction and teaching

VOLUNTEER INTEREST FORM

An interactive dashboard with current Oregon COVID-19 information can be found on the website that includes Oregon Health Authority updates and cases across the state.

The website also has a comprehensive list of federal and local resources and tools:

From the OEM COVID-19 Response website:

On March 8, 2020, Gov. Kate Brown declared a state of emergency to address the spread of COVID-19 in Oregon. This declaration gives the Governor authority to direct state agencies to use and employ state personnel, equipment, and facilities for activities designated to prevent or alleviate actual or threatened damage due to the emergency.

In response to the declaration, the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) mobilized the state Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) to coordinate and support state and local recovery efforts. The ECC is collaborating with the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and its Agency Operations Center (AOC).

OHA serves as the lead agency for public health response efforts and the ECC is focused on minimizing any disruption to critical services in Oregon.
