On May 1st,  The North Salem Viking Association and the American Red Cross have partnered with the Oregon Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the Portland Post of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) to host a community awareness event to highlight seismic risks and vulnerabilities in Oregon. The event will feature a showing of the Oregon Public Broadcasting and Oregon Field Guide documentary UNPREPARED. A panel of local engineers and emergency managers as well as Allison Pyrch and Chris Goldfinger, professionals featured in the documentary, will be available for questions following the film. The panel will answer questions about the Cascadia Event as well as other local seismic risks and how Salem and Oregon are preparing. The event is free and open to all ages. Door prizes will be awarded at the conclusion of the event. We will also have representatives from many local emergency preparedness organizations on hand to answer questions, provide information, and offer services to get Salem prepared! The award winning UNPREPARED documentary highlights our seismic risks in Oregon and the potential for major disruption after the expected 9.0 Cascadia earthquake and tsunami. It also starts the conversation about what we as Oregonians can do to be more prepared, both individually and as a community.
