Pledge to Prepare Campaign


Join the Pledge

Click here to join the Pledge to Prepare campaign and receive monthly, step-by-step emergency preparedness recommendations. Send us photos of your efforts to be entered into monthly drawings for emergency preparedness supplies.

There's always the possibility that a natural or human-caused disaster could strike us here in the Pacific Northwest.

Events like wildfire, earthquake or even a really bad winter storm can impact our electric and water systems and other public services we all rely on. In a severe emergency, some services could be disrupted for weeks or even months.

And if you are like many of us, the thought of preparing your home and family for a disaster or other emergency can be daunting: Where do you begin? What supplies should you start gathering? How much will it cost?

We want to help you help yourself.

That's why in 2020 we are once again launching the EWEB Pledge to Prepare, a 12-month blueprint for emergency preparedness.
