Emergency Preparedness

Disasters are inevitable. How prepared are you?

The story's out. We're at great risk for a major earthquake here in the Pacific Northwest. Beginning in 2015, volunteers partnered with local agencies and businesses to host an annual informative and educational earthquake preparedness event. We call it Quake Up! An estimated 3,000 people attended the first two events, visiting with exhibitors and picking up earthquake preparedness resources. Educational forums, including a presentation in Spanish, were provided and programs were recorded for Tualatin Valley Community Television Broadcasts.


2017 Quake Up!

Come to this year's Quake Up! for a series of presentations by expert speakers who will talk about current earthquake preparedness efforts. The event will also feature more than 20 exhibitors that want to assist you in preparing an earthquake readiness plan, getting involved with community organizations, and obtaining supplies tailored for earthquake preparedness.

When:   October 7, 2017, from 8:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

Where:  Hillsboro Downtown Farmers' Market near the Civic Center - 150 E. Main St., Hillsboro, OR 97123
