How do you find out if there’s an emergency that affects you directly? (Think: power outage to Portland Building; major ice storm; or… the “big one”.)
Simple: update your emergency contact information in SAP using the Employee Self-Service links on the CityLink Portal: www.portlandoregon.gov/myinfo. You can store up to eight different phone numbers (work and personal), as well as email addresses. This contact information will be used by Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM) and your own bureau to contact you about emergencies if you aren’t already at work.
You can also put in up to four emergency contacts (Think: an accident happens while I’m at work and someone needs to notify my spouse, mom, brother, daughter.)
How is this info used? This information is stored as a part of your electronic personnel record and is accessible only by bureau management and your bureau’s personnel admin (OBPA). The ability to collect and access this information in a central location is a part of the City’s Continuity of Operations Plan. For more information about this, contact your manager or bureau OBPA.
