Let’s Prepare Together is a hands-on workshop that will provide practical information to increase personal safety, to reduce risk, and to organize neighbors before, during and after an emergency or disaster. It will also connect residents with city and county agencies, non-profit institutions, and community businesses who are working on pieces of the preparedness puzzle. Presenters from the Red Cross, City of Portland, and Multnomah County will share easy and practical ways to help you get prepared.
