Quake Up Event Coming to Downtown Hillsboro
Quake Up! is a hands-on educational event presented by the Washington County Citizens Participation Organization (CPO) Program, in partnership with the Downtown Hillsboro Saturday Farmers' Market and the Washington County Museum. It is designed to help individuals and families take simple steps to prepare for an earthquake by showcasing exhibitors, emergency management experts and disaster preparedness specialists in one convenient location. This county-wide event will be held at the Hillsboro Civic Center in downtown Hillsboro on October 10, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Based on historical and scientific evidence, experts tell us that a major earthquake generated by the Cascadia Subduction Zone, just off the Pacific coast, could occur at any time. Quake Up! is a fun and interactive way to increase preparedness and bounce back faster after a disaster.
