The American Red Cross Cascades Region helps local communities be prepared for disasters such as a 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake by holding the Prepare Out Loud earthquake preparedness forum. In this presentation, Steve Eberlein discusses the science and history of the Cascadia Subduction Zone, how humans behave during disasters, what to expect during a Cascadia earthquake, how to quickly locate loved ones following a disaster, and how much food, water and other supplies people will need to take care of themselves and others. One of the goals of the presentation is for attendees to understand the central role their actions and voices play in building a culture of resilience.
