A free earthquake information fair for the public will be held Saturday, Oct. 17 from 10 a.m.to 5 p.m. at the University of Portland Chiles Center in north Portland.

Fair attendees will receive important tips on how to communicate when a disaster disrupts familiar lines of communication. The event will also offer information on how to search homes, schools, and workplaces after an earthquake when such things as glass and heavy objects are placed in dangerous places. Information on fire safety, first aid, water rationing and filtering, food storage, pet care, sanitation, and earthquake insurance and seismic home retrofits, will also be covered.

The event is sponsored by the Cascadia Region Earthquake Workgroup with support from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
