Disasters Happen - Prepare Now

Saturday, September 1, 2018 - 7:00am to 10:00am

With so many emergencies, devastating wildfires and disasters occurring across the country, it’s crucial that we all need a basic emergency kit. September is National Preparedness Month, so it’s a good time to take stock and get ready.

Start your emergency prep with water. People can survive for weeks without food, but only a few days without water. This makes water THE key ingredient to start your preparedness efforts.

Request a FREE water preparedness kit from the City of Lake Oswego and the Regional Water Providers Consortium and find out how and where to store your emergency water supplies. Each kit also contains a one-gallon emergency water bag.

Email rwpcinfo@portlandoregon.gov or call 503-823-7528 with your name, your mailing address and the name of your water provider in your message. (Offer valid for City of Lake Oswego water customers during the month of September 2018, or while supplies last. See www.regionalh2o.org for more emergency preparedness information and official promotion rules.)
