April is Earthquake Preparedness Month!


Check out the Portland Office of Emergency Management's (POEM) website at for fun and interactive information on earthquakes and preparedness resources. 

Increase Your Knowledge...

POEM and the Portland Water Bureau are co-hosting two Brown Bag events.  You are invited to learn more about Portland's own fault lines and how to sustain you and your family 72 hours and beyond a major emergency!

Portland Faults

Date: April 15, 2010

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm

Location: Portland Building, 2nd Floor Auditorium

Learn More: Think that the "big one" can only strike from the Cascadia Subduction Zone off our coast? Well think again! Portland has its own fault lines. Come learn about the East Bank and Portland Hills Faults from Dr. Evelyn Roeloffs of the US Geological Survey. Dr. Roeloffs specializes in hydrologic aspects of earthquake and volcano research. Click here to view the brochure.

Beyond 72 Hours

Date: April 19, 2010

Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm

Location: Portland Building, 2nd Floor Auditorium

Learn More: A disaster supplies kit is very important, crucial even, to your preparedness but so is what you do after the 73rd hour.  Sustainability is a popular buzzword but is the root of what we want for you and your family.  Come learn about longer term food storage, water storage, shelter, sanitation and even talk about gardens.

See you there!
