Fire Emergency Procedures


We at OYC live in an extraordinarily unique, but isolated, environment. Unlike other communities we are surrounded by nature and somewhat isolated from the encroachment and the immediate services of the outside world. The Willamette River, Oaks Bottom & Wildlife Refuge and Oaks Amusement Park surround our floating home environment. And while these facts are, in part, what makes living at the OYC so desirable and unique, the facts also present certain challenges not faced by other less isolated, land-based, planned communities.

Thus we are called upon to design our own community-based fire and emergency response plans to handle emergencies until the conventional municipal emergency services can arrive to assist us.

The following links will access emergency plans. Please familiarize yourself with the action items of the various plans. A printed copy of the Fire Emergency Quick Reference should be kept in a readily accessible spot in your home.
