State emergency officials will spend next week urging Southern Oregon residents to prepare for a magnitude 9.0 earthquake that could seriously disrupt food, water, transportation and other vital services.
"People need to have an emergency plan for their families," said Kim Lippert, spokesman for the Oregon Office of Emergency Management, which will head out on a road show to discuss the potential disaster and ways to prepare for it.
A workshop will present information about surviving and recovering from an earthquake at 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, in Medford City Hall, 411 W. Eighth St.
State officials say Oregon is due for a magnitude 9.0 Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake.
September is National Preparedness Month Are you prepared for disaster?

It seems there is going to be a training drill?
That's if I read it correctly. Either way, interesting find.

Those vehicles are also old, and death traps in a war zone. They've been replaced by MRAPs and more survivable vehicles.
Perhaps it might have something to do with Fukushima?
