Description:
In 2015, The New Yorker published an article “The Really Big One” that provided a graphic description of what could happen in the Pacific North West if we experience a major Cascadia subduction zone earthquake. Oregon Public Broadcasting also produced the documentary “unprepared” that uses scientific data to explain how unprepared we are for a major earthquake. We (Home Forward) have been working with the City, county and state to help us become resilient and prepared to re-store our community when needed. This step is about personal planning and preparation. If we start at home, we can be prepared and ready sooner to help our community and come back to work sooner: Make a personal plan and or a family reunification plan; Make personal go kits; How to stay Informed.
