Emergency Preparedness Resources: PCC Ready Bags & Community Resilience Project

Emergencies and disasters happen. The Pacific Northwest is still waiting for the "overdue" major quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone. This guide will help you to prepare for any major emergencies and disasters.

Student Created Resources

                                    Colorful ready bags neatly stacked on a table.     


The PCC Ready Bags & Community Resilience Project was started through an Eco-Social Justice grant. This initiative is working to educate and prepare students for the aftermath of a large subduction zone earthquake. PCC students have created resources that are available for downloading and printing, as well as being involved in purchasing, packing and distributing the Ready Bags.

The ultimate goal of this initiative is to increase earthquake awareness and preparedness for PCC students while building community to increase our resilience.
