SFC Jerome F. Sears Army Reserve Center

The SFC Jerome F. Sears Army Reserve Center is the future home of the City’s west side emergency operations facility. The City took possession of the former U.S. Army Reserve site in September 2012 after a multi-year process involving federal agencies, City bureaus and the surrounding neighborhood.

The City is currently working with the community on a site plan for the facility. Once the plan is complete and improvements are made to the site, the Portland Water Bureau, Portland Bureau of Transportation and Portland Bureau of Emergency Management will begin using the center, enabling the City to better respond to emergencies on the west side of the Willamette River.
