In Case of Terrorism


It is difficult to know with certainty in what form a terrorist event will take place. It could be an obvious event involving an explosion and release of hazardous materials, or it could involve a covert method, such as mailing letters or packages containing hazardous materials.



The following are guidelines for generic suspicious activities that should be reported to the Oregon State Police at (541) 737-3010 or, if life-threatening, at 911 or the Public Safety Emergency Line (541) 737-7000.
