Cascadia Earthquake Preparations for Gig Harbor

Contingent from JBLM will be coming to alert Gig Harbor community about what we should be doing NOW to plan for the 9.0 earthquake that is already overdue in our area.  It has been determined that expected results in Western Washington will be WORSE than what happened and is still happening in Puerto Rico as result of their recent hurricane.  The members from JBLM are highly trained Emergency Preparedness and commanders and will "Tell it Like it Is" without any political correctness. 

1: They will emphasize what the weaknesses are in Gig Harbor - specifically the problems with evacuating the many people living in retirement homes and who may be confined to beds or wheelchairs.  Gig Harbor does NOT have sufficient handicap busses to move a large population of disabled people even if they are not injured - and if they are injured that problem gets even larger.  

2: They will touch on the problem of: "How to secure those incarcerated in the Women's Prison IF the earthquake causes the fences to fall down.

3. What happens IF the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapses - the overpasses on 16 fall down, etc.  How about trucks delivering food to Costco, Albertson, Safeway, etc.  The stores in Gig Harbor will be empty in 48 hours.   

4. What about temporary morgues ?

These and other questions will be asked and answered.by professionals.

Welcome To Gig Harbor North Rotary
Rotary International - We are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in our communities and around the world.
It’s amazing what we can accomplish when hearts and minds work together. See how leaders from countries, cultures, and occupations around the world are taking action — to enhance health, empower youth, promote peace, and improve their community. 
 
Rotary Club of Gig Harbor North - Since our club's inception we have impacted our local community and our International friends.  Some of our activities include traveling to a remote village in Peru to create a computer lab and in 2016, traveling with high school students to Guatemala in the mountains above Lake Atitlan to work on a “refugio" for the Opal House.  We have supported Food Backpacks4Kids, secured and implemented grant monies to assist homeless families and the Peninsula School District purchasing necessities for homeless students.  Our annual fundraiser, The Galloping Gertie is always a fun and profitable venture!
 
Come be a part of this "Service Above Self" Rotary club!
