The Big One: Earthquake Ready
January 30, 2016 @ 10:00 am - February 6, 2016 @ 12:20 pm
If the NW is hit by a really big earthquake as geologists predict, are you ready? Learn how to survive this survivable disaster. Includes kit building, practical tips, survival tricks, community planning and more.
It can be overwhelming to think about what you’d do in the fact of a disaster like an earthquake, but the more you prepare, the less you’ll worry. And if you’re prepared for an earthquake, you’re prepared for almost any disaster. In this interactive class, we’ll discuss the physiological responses people have in the face of an emergency and learn how to overcome them. Youâll learn how to support your yourself, friends, family and community in the face of disaster, and we’ll talk about what’s being done in Portland to prepare. At the second class session, students will share what’s in their emergency kits, and we’ll learn some basic survival skills that will make us all feel positively prepared.
Two Saturdays, 1/30 and 2/6 from 10am to 12:20pm
Instructors: Laura Hall and Rachael Pecore-Valdez
