  • 7/20 FREE School Earthquake Response Training

    RSVP: 7/20 FREE School Earthquake Response Training



    Date: 7/20/2019,

    Times: Two, four-hour sessions: 8am-12pm or 12:30-4:30pm.  

    Location: Fire Station #2 (Fire Bureau Training Facility), 

    4800 NE 122nd Ave Portland OR 97230.


    According to a structural engineer who has studied how earthquakes affect unreinforced masonry school buildings, most of the people in your school would probably survive even a 9.0 earthquake -- and quite a few of them would likely need immediate trauma first aid and/or assistance getting out of the building.  In a large earthquake, it is likely EMS & the fire department will be delayed in responding, which means in the crucial Golden Hour after the injuries happened school staff and parents will likely be the ONLY First Responders. 

    Therefore, it is vital school staff & parents learn basic search & rescue techniques, trauma triage, and trauma first aid. These skills are simple for lay people to learn, and schools that have even a few trained staff & parents have dramatically fewer casualties, are remarkably more effective at preventing injuries, and are far more resilient in other school emergencies (like active shooters).

    The 7/20 workshops are a partnership between the Portland Bureau of Emergency Management, Portland Fire and Rescue, and the Neighborhood Emergency Team and will be taught by an experienced Portland Fire and Rescue trainer.  Participants will learn:  

    • How to identify hazards in your room & school

    • How to mitigate existing hazards

    • Basic Methods for Assessing & Responding to Trauma in a disaster setting

    • How to identify life threatening injuries and treat them effectively (Stop the Bleed)


    This training will also provide crucial skills you would need in an active shooter scenario and other emergencies at your school. 


    Vernon, Woodlawn, & Sabin Elementary Schools & four buildings at Concordia University are all un-reinforced masonry, and therefore at higher risk for serious structural damage & injuries in a major earthquake.
