Description

Background

Resilience PDX is an event to connect Portlanders (Oregon, USA) who want to acquire or share knowledge and skills about disaster preparedness. Geologists suggest the region is due for a major earthquake, and better preparedness can save lives and minimize impacts of a disaster. The more people are prepared, the faster they will be able to recover and return to 'normalcy'. At this event, various groups around Portland will be showcased that can serve as resources for the community before, during, and after a major emergency. There will also be a number of skills workshops, where experts will share knowledge to help you prepare for and recover from a disaster. All for free! Come learn and get connected. The final schedule will be posted by the end of May.

The following workshops will be offered:

• Earthquake-Proofing your Home
• Preparing a Comprehensive Household Kit
• Food Storage/Preservation
• Clean and Potable Water
• Home Energy
• Managing Pee and Poop
• Individual Resilience
• Organizing your Neighbors
• Bicycle Cargo Demonstration
• Social Media and Other Technologies in Disasters
• Putting Out Fires
