WTS Portland October Luncheon: Emergency Preparedness - Are We Ready?

11:30 AM - 01:00 PM Pacific Standard Time



The Sentinel Hotel, 614 SW 11th Avenue Portland, OR 97205

In 2011 the earthquake that occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand badly damaged buildings and infrastructure, including roads and bridges. An earthquake in our region could have a similar affect, so what lessons have we learned from Christchurch and other areas where earthquakes have recently occurred? Is our transportation network ready to provide people with safe evacuation routes and to provide access for emergency responders? Join our expert panel, comprised of Carmen Merlo, Portland Bureau of Emergency Management Director, and Oregon State University Civil and Construction Engineering Professors Dr. Andre Barbosa and Dr. Haizhong Wang, to find out.  

Register by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at http://www.wtsevents.org/chapter/Portland/.
