EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS: The City of Wheeler is a member of Nehalem Bay Emergency Volunteer Corps. This affiliation allows our city to take advantage of a larger group of volunteers who are organizing plans for shelters, food storage, water purification and evacuation routes. Members of the community can take training for: Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), Red Cross and Ham Radio Operation.
Wheeler has implemented the "Map Your Neighborhood" program which organizes our city into neighborhood blocks with block captains. "Get to Know Your Neighbors" meetings have been held for some blocks and more are planned. The meetings are held to discuss emergency contact numbers, who may need extra assistance in an emergency, who has emergency equipment and the latest news in how to prepare yourself for an emergency.
