PRESENTED BY: Wedgwood Meaningful Movies
7:00 PM, Friday, April 8, 2016 PST
Location: Wedgwood, Seattle, WA (click for map)

“CASCADIA: THE HIDDEN FIRE” is the riveting story of scientists and ordinary people caught in extraordinary seismic events and discoveries around the globe. It explains the dynamic geology of our Cascadia Region and how and why earthquakes and other seismic-related events occur. The film provides an education on the current earthquake risk and why it is important for residents here to consider natural hazards such as earthquakes. And what these seismic detectives are learning about Cascadia will ultimately benefit the two billion people that live in super-quake prone areas along the Pacific Rim known as the Ring of Fire.

Following the film, Carl Leon of the Seattle Office of Emergency Management will talk about individual and family preparedness, having a plan, building a kit, etc.

Also, join us for a special follow-up event the following day, Saturday, April 9th! Learn how to be prepared and respond to a major earthquake or other natural disaster!
