It’s now widely known that the Pacific Northwest is overdue for a major earthquake originating off the Oregon or Washington coast. Columbia Gorge Community College in partnership with Hood River County Emergency Management invites you to learn how to prepare with two “emergency preparedness fairs” scheduled April 19 and 20 in The Dalles and Hood River.

Althea Rizzo, Geologic Hazards Program Coordinator for Oregon Emergency Management, will offer a riveting presentation on the “Big One” and how our communities, businesses and home owners can prepare. How seriously you and your community are affected and how quickly you recover depends largely upon what you know and how well you prepare. Representatives from the emergency preparedness community will have informational booths and answer questions.

Two events are planned: April 19 in the Fort Dalles Readiness Center, and April 20 at Rockford Grange in Hood River. Doors open at both events at 5 p.m., with the presentation beginning at 6:00. Delicious refreshments catered by Fresh Start Culinary Arts Program and a no-host bar will be available at each location. A $10 donation will be encouraged.
