EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS IN THE PEARL
The recent NewYorker Magazine article, “The Really Big One”, highlighted the significant earthquake hazard in the Pacific Northwest. The Pearl District has a moderate to high earthquake hazard that threatens the safety of its 7,000 residents and 900-plus businesses with over 12,000 employees.
The PDNA E-Prep Committee has launched a grassroots, resident-lead, emergency preparedness program in the Pearl District. E-Prep organizing initiatives are underway in more than a half-dozen residential buildings in the Pearl, with more under development.
PDNA would like to explore the opportunity to partner with PDBA to expand the Pearl E-Prep Program to address the needs of Pearl area businesses and their employees. John will provide an overview of PDNA the building E-Prep organizing initiative and highlight it relevance for PDBA members.
