The Lane Regional Resiliency Collaborative (LRRC) is a regional cross-agency/cross-jurisdictional collaborative that is focused on pre-event hazard mitigation and risk reduction, and identifying opportunities for joint efforts. Though the focus of our work is on pre-event mitigation and risk reduction, we recognize that by working collaboratively on resilience prior to events we will strengthen relationships and set in motion efforts that will make response and recovery more efficient.

The collaborative effort kicked off with workshops in October and November 2019 featuring internationally renowned seismologist Dr. Lucy Jones attended by elected officials and staff from dozens of agencies across Lane County.

The Policy Lab, a partnership between Lane County and the University of Oregon, combined the feedback from stakeholders with research on collaborative models used in other regions to develop recommendations on the collaborative models that may be the best fit for our community. This work occurred between January and May 2020.

Work has continued behind-the-scenes with a core team of stakeholders since 2020. This group meets monthly to advance current projects, identify funding opportunities, and continue to develop creative and efficient solutions to challenges that overlap jurisdictional boundaries. The collaborative has already been proven to provide significant benefit to participants to include spanning boundaries across jurisdiction or service area, increased efficiency, stronger relationships, and enhanced resilience for our community.

Current Projects
- Regional Resiliency Building on the University of Oregon campus designed to protect public safety communications systems and critical network infrastructure. This project aims to increase communications resiliency across Lane County.
- Convening individuals from around the county that work in the same field to build relationships, discuss overlapping interests and potentially collaborate.
- Pre-staging emergency response supplies at locations around the county.
- Countywide Fuel Reduction Project Mapping in order to have a more complete picture of the fuel reduction taking place and to allow for more targeted and collaborative grant applications for future efforts.
- Interagency Resilient Communications Technology Strategic Deployment.
- Islanding Mapping Project to identify areas of the county that will be separated from others. This work will be used to determine strategic placement of resources and for grant applications.
- K12/Higher Education Reunification Planning project is underway to consolidate efforts for reunification planning for students in our community to be enacted during an emergency.
