GIG of Portland

The Oregon earthquake "Cascadia" is due, that's a fact. No, sorry, you can't bury your head in the sand or look away. "Lalalala"...come on, take those fingers out of your ears now. It's gonna happen, we just don't know when. It may not happen in your lifetime (fingers crossed!), but we can't predict that.
Get your Disaster Preparedness Kit together....now. Place it in your garage or someplace easy to access in your house (not your basement). Place tools outside and nearby to ply away fallen wood frames/timber from your house in order to access your supplies.
Water, food, supplies for 2 weeks. If you have food sensitivities or allergies, you ESPECIALLY need to get your food ready. Helloooo celiacs and non-celiac gluten sensitive: most disaster shelter food is gluten-laden!!
Water: 1 gallon per person/day + 1 gallon per pet/day for drinking (+ 2 gallons for washing yourself, plates, hands)
Non-food: goggle, dust masks, work gloves, tools, phone chargers, can opener, camp stove, pots/pans, utensils, tarps, tent, sleeping bags
Then go through your stock 4 times a year, with every season to eat close-to-expiration date supplies and restock/re-evaluate the food & supplies.
See video below for ideas.
