This April at PBEM is all about earthquakes: what they are, how they impact Portland and what you can do to prepare. Check our website and follow our Twitter and Facebook accounts for new information throughout the month.
To kick things off, here are some links to earthquake preparedness resources:
- Living on Shaky Ground: How to Survive Earthquakes and Tsunamis in Oregon – handbook that explains how you can prepare for, survive and recover from earthquakes and tsunamis.
- Portland’s Residential Seismic Strengthening Program – information from the Portland Bureau of Development Services on how to make your home more secure in advance of an earthquake.
- A Homeowner’s Guide to Nonstructural Earthquake Retrofit – brochure with nonstructural ways to retrofit your home.
