About Us

PBEM promotes readiness, coordinates response, and builds resilience for Portland. This includes developing and implementing strategic planning, programs, and policies to continually advance Portland's mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery capabilities.

The bureau's work is aligned around four strategic goals:

  1. Continue to develop the City's suite of response and recovery plans.

  2. Advance Emergency Coordination Center (ECC) readiness.

  3. Foster connected and resilient neighborhoods.

  4. Spur innovation and workplace excellence to reduce the City's disaster risk.
