Push Partner Registry (PPR)

Thank you for your interest in the Cities Readiness Initiative (CRI) Portland Metropolitan Region's Push Partner Registry (PPR).

Push Partners are community organizations that are willing, able and trained up to the level of responding to a biological terrorist event but they can also be called upon to assist in responses to other hazards. Push Partners in the Portland metropolitan region include:

Large employers - Private and public organizations with large numbers of staff on centrally located campuses.

Vulnerable population service providers - Organizations which help people who cannot attend (such as residents of long term care facilities or prison inmates) or are unlikely to attend (the homeless population) public health medication distribution sites. Serves employees and their families plus clients in their care.

Planned responders - Organizations with a written or implied role in emergency plans (includes first responders and critical infrastructure agencies).
