RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Oregon is indeed a leader in emergency "readiness". Thanks for sharing Portland's leadership in emergency management and response readiness.
However, the public can be led to an artificial sense of security when they don't understand that emergency managers' "readiness" doesn't equal their safety or their children's safety in buildings that are not seismically retrofitted or upgraded (or built after 2001). It's a critical distinction that I fear is lost in the reporting this week.
