 CrewOrg logoThe Cascadia Region Earthquake Workgroup (CREW) was formed in the late 1990s to address the regional nature of earthquake hazards in the Pacific Northwest. CREW is a coalition of private and public representatives working together to improve the ability of communities throughout the Cascadia Region to reduce the effects of earthquakes and related hazards, such as tsunami. We work to build stronger relationships within and between the public, private, academic and other non profit organizations located and/or operating throughout the Cascaida region, which stretches from northern California to British Columbia.
