Marilin Hoff - "the Earthquake Lady" will speak concerning earthquake preparedness.
Here is a short synopsis of an event that Marilin spoke at recently...

Marilin Hoff, a community presenter for the Utah Division of Homeland Security.
Hoff's nickname-inspiring earthquake preparedness presentation, which she gave to North Salt Lake residents at a Uniting Neighbors meeting last April. More than 200 people attended, inspiring the group to bring Hoff back for a second presentation.  "Everyone loves Marilin," said Kirkham. "She's extremely informative but also extremely entertaining. We had several requests for her to come back."
