Emergency Preparedness Fair Will Prepare Neighbors for Survival in the Event of a Disaster

[Portland, Oregon] After a devastating series of catastrophic hurricanes, wildfires and mudslides in this country, the need for disaster preparedness is apparent. On Sunday, March 4, 2018, from 12:00-4:00 PM, an Emergency Preparedness Fair will be held to heighten community awareness of what to do in an emergency. By hosting this Fair, local experts in emergency response are taking a proactive approach to preparing for the possibility of an extreme emergency.

The Emergency Preparedness Fair, sponsored by SW Neighborhoods, Inc. (SWNI) will take place in the auditorium of the Multnomah Arts Center (7688 SW Capitol Highway, Portland, OR 97219). Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NETs), formed by the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management (PBEM) will offer, among other things, emergency food ideas, gas meter turn-off demonstrations, and solutions for water storage, purification and water safety. Local emergency-related organizations like NW Natural Gas, Andy and Bax, Portland Fire & Rescue, Cascadia Quake Kits and NW Seismic will have display materials on hand, while Tim Collins, Senior Engineer at the Portland Water Bureau will give a presentation at 1 pmdiscussing Portland’s present water supply system and what is being done to improve its vulnerability to a seismic event. Door prizes, free samples, kids’ activities and instructional knot tying are just a few of the other happenings.

“Neighborhood Emergency Teams (NETs) will participate in the event,” said Carol Porto, Chair of the SWNI Public Safety Committee. “NETs are local volunteers who have been trained by the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management in aspects of first aid and emergency response. In the case of an extreme emergency, NETs may well be our first responders until Police and Fire departments are able to arrive”.

Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc.’s (SWNI) Public Safety Committee, who is hosting this event, focuses on preparing residents for survival in times of disaster. When neighborhoods form their own NETs and train for emergencies, they are better prepared to help themselves and their neighbors in the event of an emergency like an earthquake, tsunami, or man-made disaster. SWNI is a coalition of seventeen neighborhood associations that empowers citizens to improve and maintain the livability of Southwest neighborhoods.

Everyone is welcome and invited to attend this free event.
