Delaware County Fraternal Orders Collection. Preparing for the Worst Authorities worked hard to see that people took the blackout warnings seriously.
Blackouts, which attempted to extinguish or shield light sources completely, usually were called for a relatively short period in relation to a possible imminent air raid. Dimouts, on the other hand, were primarily a regular, less restrictive measure taken in all or part of 14 western Oregon counties. Both measures caused their share of problems, particularly the dimouts, as Oregonians grappled with labyrinthine regulations, confusing interpretations, and new terms such as "foot candles" of light.
After months of preparation, Oregon civilian defense officials participated in a set of coordinated air raid maneuvers on Oct. Designed to test numerous aspects of communication and organization, the maneuvers also tested the public's willingness to participate in a blackout during this pre-Pearl Harbor exercise. Army air interceptor and combat forces were scheduled to provide a demonstration in conjunction with the civilian defense program but most flights were scrubbed at the last minute because of weather concerns.

Officials posted notices across Portland and other cities announcing the blackout exercise. Multnomah County alone counted 8, "lady air raid wardens" and 10, male wardens along with over 1, auxiliary firemen and over 1, boy scouts. Lane County reported over air raid wardens, aircraft observers, and hundreds of associated participants during the blackout exercise. Other counties put up large numbers of participants as well, with the exception of several smaller eastern Oregon counties that reported incomplete organization.
Most reports of the maneuvers from county officials to the State Defense Council described the process as "very satisfactory" or "a pronounced success. It is true, of course, that a few minor errors took place.
