Haiti. Chile. New Zealand.
Our hope is that Oregonians never have to experience a major earthquake, but the reality of a Cascadia subduction zone quake is likely in Oregon’s future. On Tuesday, March 15
, you have the chance to feel the impact of a major earthquake firsthand with The Red Cross Experience
, a free interactive exhibit at the Oregon Convention Center (Hall D) from 9 a.m to 2 p.m.
On your self-guided tour, pass by a home and an office where the earthquake’s effects are seen; watch students practice how to Duck, Cover and Hold On; experience a disaster shelter and tour a bloodmobile.
After your tour, continue the Red Cross Experience through a blood donation! You won’t even have to leave the room to help save a life. Sign up now (sponser code: MetroPDX) or call 503-528-5603 to schedule your donation slot between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the on-site blood drive (Hall D in the Convention Center).
We hope you’ll join us for this firsthand look at the important work of the Oregon Red Cross. The Red Cross Experience is a one-day only event — don’t miss it!
