Are you prepared for the “big one”, the next Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake? Join the Albany Regional Museum for our next History Bites on Wednesday, August 14, from 12-1 pm to find out. Steve Robinson, of Cascadia Prepared, tells us why, when and how we should be prepared.
The Cascadia Subduction Zone is 700 miles long off the coastline of Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. It has an active past with over 28 severe earthquakes in the last 6000 years. There’s an average of 202 years between quakes. The last was 319 years ago.
Cascadia Prepared was founded in January 2017 and partners with Cascadia Region Earthquake Workgroup (CREW), Red Cross, and others. Cascadia Prepared is sponsored by OCCU, Banner Bank and SAIF among others. “We are a nonprofit organization aiming to recruit thousands of members throughout the Cascadia Region, from Northern California, through Oregon and Washington, up to British Columbia, to help us survive and thrive before, during, and after the coming earthquake.”
Steve Robinson has worked for SAIF Corporation and ODOT, was a 12-year member of the Eugene School Board, and a former lobbyist. He holds an MBA from Stanford.
