Keeping You Safe: Prepare Out Loud

Red Cross Flag

The American Red Cross and KGW are helping our community be prepared for disasters such as a 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake by holding Prepare Out Loud earthquake and disaster preparedness forums.

Attendees will experience a unique and interactive presentation where they will learn:

  • The science and history of the Cascadia Subduction Zone
  • How humans behave during disasters
  • What to expect during a Cascadia earthquake
  • How to quickly locate your loved ones following a disaster, and
  • How much food, water and other supplies you will need to take care of yourself and others.

Following the Prepare Out Loud presentation, attendees will understand the central role their actions and voices play in building a culture of resilience.
