BEND, OR -- Governor Kate Brown is in Central Oregon, Wednesday, to focus on preparing for natural disasters like wildfires and earthquakes. She'll be at Discovery Park in NorthWest Crossing at 11 a.m., to help the Heart of Oregon Corps remove excess brush that could fuel a wildfire. She is also expected to film a public service announcement for the group Keep Oregon Green.

 

At 1 p.m., Governor Brown will visit Roberts Field in Redmond, to learn about plans to build an interagency wildfire dispatch center. Then, she'll head to the Deschutes County Fairgrounds, which would be a designated staging area for the Federal Emergency Management Area (FEMA) in response to a Cascadia earthquake.
