Members of the media,
Please help us remind our community that Mayor Ted Wheeler’s Executive Order declaring a State of Emergency (attached) includes a curfew taking effect from 8 p.m. tonight to 6 a.m. Sunday morning.
Please also remind your readers and audiences that the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management will be sending out a Wireless Emergency Alert (WEA) later today reminding all in the community about the curfew. We’re asking to remind everyone that when the message is received, to please not call 911 unless someone is experiencing an actual emergency.
We understand there are many questions and concerns throughout the community relating to the curfew. We have posted both the Emergency Declaration and a copy of FAQs about the curfew on Mayor Wheeler’s website at this link. Please feel free to share it.
We truly appreciate your cooperation and help in keeping our community informed and safe!
