Portland Earthquake Kits sells 30-90 day earthquake preparedness kits for homeowner recovery and business continuity.

Homeowners need a basic comfort kit for living for months without city services.

A 72 hour emergency bag is great if you are evacuating, but most homeowners will stay in their homes after a major quake. Our Essentials Kit contains only critical items – the ones you really need, the ones you don’t already have, and the ones you can’t have too much of – at a price every homeowner can afford.

Do you rely on your business for income? That won’t change after an earthquake.

50% of all businesses close after a major disaster, and businesses that stay closed for 5 days have a 90% chance of never opening again. We can do better. Portland has a thriving economy, and it will grow and thrive again. We can help you with the materials you need to stay open, even without electricity or running water.

Preparing adequately takes time, effort, and can be expensive and overwhelming. We can help! We’ve done the research, and can provide you what you need for less than it would cost you on your own. Promise.
