It’s never too early to start preparing for a natural disaster, so we’ve been working with city and county partners to put together an emergency plan in case something big — like Cascadia — hits.
If something disastrous were to happen, we’d keep transit running as long as roadways are usable. We’ve also been developing a transportation recovery plan with other local transit agencies to ensure we’re able to move people to and from emergency shelters and bring in resources if needed.
Do you already have an emergency plan in place? Here are some tips to help you plan ahead:
- Sign up for emergency alerts to receive real-time disaster warnings.
- Prepare an evacuation route in case you need to leave your home immediately. (And practice it!)
- Gather critical financial, household and medical information in a safe place.
- Volunteer and get certified in basic disaster response skills to help your community during a crisis.
