HASS Plans were created by the Oregon Legislature in 2017. The Board of Directors approved Columbia Gorge ESD's HASS Plan on July 17, 2019, with updates made on March 24, 2021 .

Continuity of Operations Annex

The purpose of the Continuity of Operations Annex (COOP) is to provide planning and guidance for conducting essential functions, with or without warning, before, during, and after various emergencies. While it is not possible to plan for every situation, the plan is designed to support adaptation based on learnings and the specific challenge faced.
