It’s important to be ready when disaster strikes. Whether it’s a flood, wildfire or other emergency common to Oregon, these events disproportionately affect older adults, many of whom have mobility, chronic disease or disability challenges that require them to seek extra assistance to get to safety.
Most of the people displaced by the Almeda Drive wildfire were low-income older residents who lived in one of a dozen mobile-home parks along the Oregon 99/I-5 corridor. Efforts to help them have been hampered by a tight job market, limited housing and the restrictions of the pandemic.
