    Yeah, I think if there were an earthquake,
  • 0:27 - 0:28
    and the bridges are out of service,
  • 0:28 - 0:31
    I don't know how I would get home.
  • 0:32 - 0:33
    You have to swim.
    (laughing)
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    I'd have to take a boat.
  • 0:36 - 0:41
    Bike across or drag my kayak downtown
    and kayak across I guess.
  • 0:41 - 0:44
    Sounds like a scary thing,
    because if the bridges are down,
  • 0:44 - 0:45
    how would you get home?

    I think it's essential!

    Yes...

  • 0:55 - 0:56
    No, I think that, you know,
    we do need to consider
  • 0:56 - 0:58
    what could happen in emergencies.
  • 0:58 - 1:02
    And every region...
    every region has emergencies
  • 1:02 - 1:05
    that are applicable to its environment,
  • 1:05 - 1:08
    and earthquakes are just part
    of living in the Northwest.
  • 1:08 - 1:09
    I really think
  • 1:09 - 1:13
    that they should definitely
    invest our money on infrastructure,
  • 1:13 - 1:15
    and protect us, this bridge,
    against earthquake.
  • 1:16 - 1:17
    It's good with the old.
  • 1:17 - 1:21
    I love my city, but I want it safe too.
