Why Seattle 4?


Of thousands of Rotary clubs in the world today, Seattle was number four, and we’ve been growing ever since. It’s a legacy that our business and community leaders take seriously, gathering weekly to manifest the Rotarian ideals of friendship, fellowship, and service. As one of the world’s largest Rotary clubs, we can and do make big things happen in our local and global communities. 

Over the decades, Rotary Club of Seattle has provided a forum for prominent people from business, civic, and academia in the United States and around the world. They have found the club to be an excellent venue to present their views on topical issues and encourage support for their programs and causes.

The Really Big One
Risky Business: Earthquake Preparedness in the Pacific Northwest

During the summer of 2015 an article title "the Really Big One" appeared in The New Yorker magazine and created quite a buzz around Seattle.  the article highlighted the potential for a 9.0 magnitude earthquake along the Cascadia subduction zone that could affect much of the west coast.  It left many wondering what it meant for them.  this session will provide an overview of our areas' earthquake risks, examining how an earthquake early warning system could benefit the region and showcase the ways in which government agencies,, non-profits and neighborhoods are preparing for "the Really Big One".
