BEECN

A BEECN (short for Basic Earthquake Emergency Communication Node) is a place to go in Portland after a major earthquake to ask for emergency assistance if phone service is down, or report severe damage or injury. Click on the links below to learn more about BEECNs, find a site near you and get prepared for an earthquake.

There are no BEECN trainings on the calendar at the moment. Updates will post here when trainings are confirmed.

If you have a group of six people or more please contact beecn@portlandoregon.gov and arrangements can be made to provide a free, 90-minute BEECN training at a time and place convenient for you.
