It’s been three weeks since the huge earthquake and tsunami in Japan, and people in Central Oregon seem to be more tuned in to preparing for a disaster. That's according to a political group: the Central Oregon Patriots, that just held a free seminar on emergency preparedness. Co-Chair of the Redmond Patriots, Bob Perry, says they hold public meetings on a regular basis and this recent seminar was one of their best attended one. "With everything that's going on in Japan, we have great interest in this. And we can't just close our eyes and think that Central Oregon wouldn't be impacted if we do have a major earthquake on the Cascadia Fault. It would mean the dislocation of a lot of people. There's even emergency plans that as many as 100,000 would be lodged at the Deschutes Fairgrounds." Perry says this was so popular they plan to have follow up meetings on disaster preparedness.
