Learn how at the SAN Community Meeting Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016

Don Francis, owner of EcoTech, will be our guest speaker at this month’s SAN Community Meeting.

Don helped Sumner residents understand and protect their family from radon at October SAN meeting. Neighbors requested additional informative meetings, so we are starting off the new year with Earthquake Preparedness.

We will discuss preparing your home, family and community for an earthquake and its aftermath. The latest research suggests that the Pacific Northwest may get hit by a giant, coastal earthquake of magnitude 8 to 9 every 250 years on average — and it’s been 313 years since the last one.

Earthquakes may be unpredictable — but they are also inevitable. Many of us think about the ways to prepare for an earthquake, but we fail to think about the long-term effects a largescale disaster will have on us and our neighbors. Although we can never truly plan for a major disaster, educating ourselves in terms of surviving weeks and months afterwards, is the first step toward preparedness.

EcoTech was awarded Multnomah County’s 2005 Public Health Hero Award in recognition of their efforts to protect the community from environmental hazards, and their support of local charities.

The meeting is held Tuesday, Feb.16, 2016 at 7:00pm at the CNN office, 4415 NE 87th Ave. There will also be coffee, treats, free raffle, a police update and more.
