Parents and Schools
Parents4Preparedness (P4P) is a group of parents, educators, and concerned community members focused on earthquake safety in schools. We share information about preparedness efforts happening at our schools in hopes of helping others to replicate the efforts at their own schools. We generally focus on non-structural hazard mitigation (furniture strapping), emergency supply storage, and reunification plans. We also engage in political advocacy and public education. Most of our members live in the Portland area, but some live elsewhere in the metropolitan area or the state. The issues we face in Portland are in most cases not unique to Portland. Visit our website to learn more about our group and about how to prepare your family for an earthquake or other major emergency.
