Emergency Plans

Eugene Springfield Multi-jurisdictional Emergency Operations Plan

The Eugene Springfield Multi-Jurisdictional Emergency Operations Plan is an all-hazards plan which outlines how the cities of Eugene and Springfield will prepare for and respond to emergencies. The purpose of the plan is to establish a comprehensive approach to protect the life, safety and health of the community. The Basic Plan describes how the cities’ emergency management systems are organized and provides a framework for collaboration and coordination in order to provide the most efficient and effective use of resources during emergencies and major disasters. The Basic Plan also supports and facilitates emergency management coordination at the federal, state, and county levels.

2020 Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan

The Cities of Eugene and Springfield have updated the Multi-jurisdictional Natural Hazards Mitigation Plan (NHMP). This work was funded and performed by the City of Eugene, the City of Springfield, Eugene Water & Electric Board, Rainbow Water District, and Springfield Utility Board.

A natural hazards mitigation plan provides communities with a set of goals, action items, and resources designed to reduce risk from future natural disaster events.
