As part of a special report from Seattle’s local public radio station, KUOW, “On Shaky Ground: Waiting for the Big One in the Pacific Northwest,” there’s a three-minute audio interview with JoAnn Jordan, the Public Education Coordinator, Seattle Office of Emergency Management, on how to stay safe in an earthquake.
Jordan is a top local public emergency communications official and has been pushing preparedness in Seattle so long she’s called “The Earthquake Lady”. It’s a nice, compact earthquake preparedness review, which includes both “Drop, Cover & Hold” as well as “Beneath, Beside, Between.” It can be heard on the KUOW website here. Thanks to the Seattle Red Cross Twitter feed for bringing this to my attention.
