The small, coastal city of Warrenton, Oregon (pop. 4,500) is taking big steps toward preparedness. I just learned about their brand new (well, started in July) S.T.E.P. initiative. It stands for Storm, Tsunami & Earthquake Preparedness, and it’s all about building a grassroots community preparedness network. (I am so into that.)
Not only do they have a good goal and an adorable logo, they also have a blog! I recommend subscribing to it if you live anywhere near our great rocky shores. It looks like they post some good coastal preparedness resources.
And on November 3 – exactly a week from today – they’ll be hosting an interactive preparedness workshop with coastal hazard experts. Very cool.
Hat tip to Moss Grove for the info.
