Creekside Neighborhood

Preparedness Get-togethers

Hello all! My name is Bridget Good. I am a Creekside neighbor and have been a City of Salem Community Emergency Response Team volunteer since 2015. I’d like to invite you to this summer’s free Creekside Neighborhood preparedness get-togethers!

The events will focus on how to prepare for a massive earthquake in the Pacific Northwest — what’s known as a Cascadia Subduction Zone (CSZ) megathrust earthquake (and tsunami, for those who spend time on the coast). 

Get-togethers will be held on the following Sunday afternoons at the Salem Public Library in the Anderson B conference room.
