How prepared is the Pearl District for a major emergency?

Our guest speaker, at this month’s meeting, is John Warner, a board member for the Pearl District Neighborhood Association (PDNA) and chair of the association’s Emergency Preparedness (E-Prep) Committee.

When John last spoke at our breakfast meeting in August 2015 about the PDNA Emergency Preparedness initiative, seven residential buildings in the Pearl District had started E-prep initiatives. The E-prep program has since expanded to 22 buildings, and continues to grow.

John will give us an update on the e-prep initiative’s progress, and discuss it’s impact on community building that extends beyond disaster resilience.
