Co Hosted by West Linn Chamber of Commerce and Marylhurst University

The West Linn Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Marylhurst University and several community organizations, presents a Disaster Preparedness Open House. The half-day event will feature expert speakers talking about disasters that may affect organizations in our geographic region, what will likely happen as a result of the disaster and what can be done to prepare.   

 A team of researchers led by Chris Goldfinger, a geologist at Oregon State University finds that “…there is about a 20 percent chance that northern Oregon—a region that includes Portland and Astoria—will be hit by a magnitude-8.0-or-higher quake in the next 50 years. (Previously, the area was estimated to have about a 12 percent chance of facing such a quake.) Washington state has between a 14 and 17 percent chance of facing a big one, up from an 8 to 14 percent chance.” The Atlantic, A Major Earthquake in the Pacific Northwest Looks Even Likelier

"As the community's university, we recognize our responsibility to educate and enrich our community," said Christina Laird, events manager at Marylhurst University. "When we partner with organizations like West Linn Chamber of Commerce, it extends both our reach and the expertise we can share."
