Our training & education series continues on May 16th!

Our 2011 Training & Education series continues on May 16th, as West Seattle Be Prepared joins forces with Mark Howard from the Seattle Office of Emergency Management to present the documentary, Cascadia -The Hidden Fire; this is a groundbreaking 60-minute film by Michael Leinau and Lisa Knorr that educates homeowners, business owners and educators on earthquake hazards unique to the Cascadia region and how to effectively prepare for and survive them. The film is an extraordinary presentation on the Cascadia Subduction Zone, the same threat that Japan experienced.

Mark Howard and special guest Chris Jonientz-Trisler, who is featured in the film, will lead discussion afterwards. Jonientz-Trisler’s background includes 11 years of seismology lab work (earthquake and volcano research, working with the public on what it means) and 19 years with FEMA — 15 of those running the regional Earthquake, Volcano and Tsunami Programs. The last 4 years, she has managed the Hazard Mitigation Assistance grant programs to mitigate flood and earthquake impacts in the Pacific Northwest.
