Jerry Thompson spoke about the Cascadia Fault:

1300 km long
Extending from Northern California to northern Vancouver Island
It is an active subduction zone
Last time it slipped was in year 1700 and it caused widespread damage along the coast.

Ann Pacey spoke about how to prepare your neighbourhood for an emergency:

What supplies to keep on hand 
How to make your living space safer
How to map your ​neighbourhood to find out how to shut off natural gas, to find out the skills of your neighbours, to find out who may need extra help in case of an emergency
What Vancouver is doing to prepare
What the Dunbar Earthquake and Emergency Preparedness group is doing

The meeting was well attended (35 participants) and there was a lively discussion period after the presentations.
