The American Red Cross Cascades Region is helping our community be prepared for disasters such as a 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake by holding the Prepare Out Loud earthquake preparedness forum. 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
