Wren Emergency Preparedness

The Wren Emergency Planning Committee is a project of the WCC. The committee's purpose is to help residents prepare for and respond to emergencies and disasters.

Take the Scared out of Being Prepared

There are many on-line resources to aid parents/care givers with helping children during an emergency or disaster. The Wren Emergency Preparedness Committee encourages you to do some research and gather information, specific to your household, to include the well being of children when planning a household evacuation or shelter-in-place. 

Most importantly, PRACTICE, which will reduce chaos and stress during an emergency.

The Wren Disaster Preparedness Phone Tree Network is part of emergency preparedness/response and involves thirteen local phone tree areas, described as “neighborhoods” - map provided below. These neighborhoods have volunteer leaders who are in contact with the community co-coordinators: 

    Karen Schulz  at 541-740-7960


    Jenny Brandenburg at 541-609-8129

Contact a co-coordinator if you are interested in joining the phone tree network. Participation is confidential and includes residents living or owning property in the Wren Fire District.

Neighborhood Alerts

In the event of an emergency, the co-coordinators activate the phone tree network, contacting (phone/text) each Neighborhood Leader. They, or a nearby neighbor, would contact you and provide information and/or instructions. You may be asked to pass the message on to another neighbor on the Phone Tree, as doing so could save lives.

Regional Alerts

Sign up for the Linn-Benton ALERT Emergency Notification System for your email and portable devices. The system is a mass notification system that allows public safety officials to provide rapid notifications to Linn and Benton County residents of emergencies, evacuations, and other urgent events. By signing up, you receive time-sensitive emergency and safety alerts from public safety officials in Linn or Benton County. You choose how and where to receive alerts - cell, home, and/or work phone, by email, text messages, or TTY (hearing impaired devices) and more.
