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.

Although there are no BEECN trainings on the calendar at the moment if you have a group of six people or more please contact beecn@portlandoregon.gov and arrangements can be made to provide a 90-minute BEECN training at a time and place convenient to you.
