Earthquake Preparedness: Making Your Home and Neighborhood More Resilient

March 19th, 6-7:30PM | Urban Nest Realty

A family emergency kit is just one piece of the earthquake preparedness puzzle. Join Urban Nest for an empowering presentation on making your home and neighborhood more resilient.

Carmen Merlo, the director of the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management, will share lessons learned during a month-long visit to Christchurch, New Zealand, a city much like Portland in size and landscape but deep in the recovery from a devastating earthquake in February 2011.

Carmen will discuss different possible emergency scenarios during an earthquake and provide suggestions on improving preparedness and reducing the impact of heavy shaking on your home. This class is a great opportunity to be aware and make sure that your family is prepared. Urban Nest is proud to host this valuable course as a free resource for the community.
