Polk County Itemizer-Observer • April 5, 2017 7A Event, film encourage preparedness Documentary to be shown during Community Prepare Fair on Saturday By Jolene Guzman The Itemizer-Observer SALEM — Ed Jahn apolo- gizes a lot for scaring peo- ple. That wasn’t Jahn’s inten- tion when he produced “Unprepared,” an Oregon Public Broadcasting docu- mentary about how pre- pared the state is for the 9.0 Cascadia subduction zone earthquake. Simply put, it’s not, Jahn said. But he sees hopeful signs that that’s changing. “Unprepared,” an Oregon Field Guide Special, was re- leased in October 2015. It followed what Jahn called “the summer of quakes,” because the national atten- tion brought to the subject thanks to the Pulitzer Prize- winning New Yorker article about Cascadia entitled, “The Really Big One.” That article published in July 2015 in the middle of OPB’s series on Cascadia, including “Unprepared.” “We had been reporting on the science of it over the years,” Jahn said. He said the state’s top ge- ologists expressed a con- cern, not about the science behind the Cascadia sub- duction zone, but what it means for the region during and after an earthquake and tsunami. “They said, ‘We don’t think people are really get- ting it,’” Jahn said. “The gap was on the issue of being prepared.” To bring that aspect to light, the “Unprepared” crew interviewed the state’s seismic and engineering ex- perts, survivors of other big quakes, and local officials trying to protect their com- munities. Jahn traveled to Japan, where the Tohoku 9.0 earth- quake happened in 2011. It stands as a warning and a lesson. Japan is one of the most earthquake-ready countries on the planet, Jahn said. “Three years later, people NOAA/for the Itemizer-Observer “Unprepared” focuses on how prepared Oregon is for the 9.0 Cascadia subduction zone earthquake. were still living in tempo- rary housing,” he said. People who had lived in coastal communities in Japan had given up on hopes of restoring their homes, their cities, Jahn said. Jahn thought, if that hap- pened in Japan, imagine what would happen in Ore- gon, where much of the in- frastructure was built before the sleeping giant fault line was common knowledge. “Looking at the state of our bridges, simple things will be impossible simply because a bridge is out,” Jahn said. “How are you going to get food and water because the bridge between you and store is out?” The answer hit Jahn hard during the filming of “Un- prepared.” Talking to ex- perts made it clear that after Cascadia goes, life would change dramatically, even for people out of the reach of the tsunami. Get home safe, call your D.D. • 24 Hour Service • Pick up Drop Off Don’t be ‘unprepared’ What: Community Prepare Fair. When: Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., showings of “Un- prepared” at 10 a.m. and noon. Where: North Salem High School, 765 14th NE, Salem. Park in the D Street lot. Of note: Question-and-answer sessions will follow both showing of “Unprepared.” “This one really got into my mind,” Jahn said. “We are really going to be on our own.” Jahn planned with his family and bought supplies for their home and cars. S a t u r d a y, t h e M i d - Willamette Emergency Communications Collabo- rative will host the Commu- nity Prepare Fair to help others do what Jahn did — prepare. MWECC is group of gov- ernment agencies, business advocates and media out- lets in Polk and Marion counties (including the Itemizer-Observer) that are working together to encour- age residents to plan for dis- asters. The event is at North Salem High School, 765 14th St. NE, Salem, and will feature two screenings of “Unprepared” followed by question-and-answer ses- sions sponsored by the Ore- gon Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Vendor and informational booths will offer emergency kit supplies and readiness resources. City and county emergency management representatives and Com- munity Emergency Re- sponse Teams will be on hand to answer questions. Jahn said the effort to in- form people about what is lurking off the coast is work- ing. “I have seen tremendous progress on the awareness front,” he said. He said the reality “Un- prepared” revealed is scary, but people can take steps to make themselves self-suffi- cient. “People are overwhelmed a lot. There is so much hap- pening that we can’t do any- thing about,” he said. “This is a problem that will hap- pen in the future that we can actually do something about.” ffer We now o es with ri e v li 1 yard de ller truck. a sma • Garden Compost • Garden Blended Mixes • Compost Blended Soil • Several Sizes of Round Rock • 2 Different Dry River Bed Mixes of Round Rock and Crushed Rock for Driveways Call to schedule a delivery.

Berkey V SER I X TA 971-240-1208 T ucked away in Buena Vista lies the lovely Redgate Vineyard, where “if the gate is open, we’re open.” Steve and Char- lene Dunn first planted pinot gris and pinot noir grapes in 2006, and have been making wines for five years using the talents of winemaker Steve Baron. To celebrate their anniversary, they are throwing a party coinciding with the Great American Eclipse on Aug. 21. The party will go Friday through Monday morning, and costs $50. It includes a sangria breakfast buffet on Monday morning, commemorative Redgate fifth anniversary eclipse glass, eclipse viewing glasses, and free tastings of Redgate’s award-winning wines. Six months ago, Steve and Charlene entered their first Family Owned & Operated • We accept competitions and took away medals ranging from bronze (Newport Seafood and Wine Festival for Redgate’s pinot noir), silver (First Taste of Oregon for tempranillo) to a coveted double gold (San Francisco Chronicle Competition, tempranillo). “They only gave out six double golds,” Steve said. “In the largest com- petition in the United States, we got one of those six.” Double gold medals are rare because it means all five judges on the panel must agree that the wine is gold-medal worthy. Redgate hosts musical concerts each Friday through Labor Day, and starts Party while you Paint events on April 30.
