Building earthquake resilience through technology

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
English

As we approach the 25th anniversary of the Loma Prieta Earthquake, it is time to ask the question, “Is California better prepared for a catastrophic event?” and “Are there new technology solutions that can make a difference in saving lives and property?”.

Since the Loma Prieta event, California’s population, physical infrastructure, and GDP, have all increased dramatically and researchers are now predicting a high probability of a major earthquake occurring in a densely populated area of California within the next 20 to 30 years.
