Beat The Heat In Our Cool Venue!

Join us for this illuminating film and an update on the current siesmic conditions in the Seattle area by Dr. John Vidale, Professor at the University of Washington and Director of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network.

“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.

Join us following the film for a Community Discussion on Emergency Preparedness in Seattle as it relates to the Wallingford Area, and how you can work with your neighbors to be personally prepared.

      Hi Walt, “Cascadia” is available from Michael Lienau at Global Net Productions, http://globalnetproductions.com. He has a ton of interesting emergency prep DVD’s and other topics like the St. Helens Eruption. A great organization to support!
