- What: Spring Speaker Series
- Session 1: Yumei Wang, PE, FASCE, Owner of SLS LLC, and Senior Advisor on Infrastructure
- Resilience and Risk Affiliate Faculty, Civil & Environmental Engineering, Portland State University.
- Cascadia Catastrophe in Coastal Communities
- Wang will discuss the expected catastrophic impacts from a Cascadia earthquake and tsunami on coastal communities, describing tsunami casualty estimates in each community, the breakdown of the Highway 101’s bridges that will result in a series of “islands”, and specific challenges that hospitals face in preparing for this inevitable disaster. People need to help reduce the increasing frequency and severity of disasters, including a Cascadia catastrophe. The “triple 3 resilience target” integrates readiness, response and recovery goals to strengthen community resilience. She will share fuel and water disaster planning guidelines aimed to help coastal hospitals prepare for “the big one”.
- Session 2: Sky Terry , NW Regional Emergency Services Director. Emergency Volunteer Aviation Team from NW Washington. http://www.evac.org/ and http://www.evac.org/northwest.htm
- My name is Sky Terry and I am the NW Regional Emergency Services Director for the Emergency Volunteer Air Corps (EVAC) and also one of the leaders of the West Coast General Aviation Response Plan (WCGARP).
- It's been well over a decades worth of drills, responses and effort but what we've developed together is a aviation based resource tied with ground support and HAM communication that we believe is the juggernaut that can take the worst the planet can dish out and can rise to the occasion to be that life saving critical life line when it's needed the most. Below is just one video of one of our past drills.
- Thank you again for being willing to be a part of this noble effort and below is our main website with some great additional information.
