Earthquake early warning. Protecting lives and property


March 31, 2014 SCOTTS VALLEY –We are aware of a fraudulent message purportedly issued by Seismic Warning Systems, Inc. relative to an earthquake advisory in Southern California. Although we should always be mindful of potential earthquakes, it is unfortunate that some individuals may be unduly alarmed or worried by a false statement being attributed to me, my company, the State of California, and the USGS.

Earthquake Early Warning

Much of the damage and injury caused by earthquakes could be prevented if early warning of a destructive earthquake were available.

QuakeGuard™ is a proven earthquake early warning system from Seismic Warning Systems, Inc. that provides an early warning through advanced, patented P-wave technology. QuakeGuard provides earthquake intelligence to commercial, industrial and government markets for seismic risk mitigation projects, new builds and seismic retrofits.

QuakeGuard is unique. It detects the early signs of an earthquake, and also provides an automated, programmable response through alerts, alarms or automated system controls. As a result, human injury, loss of life and damage to property are significantly reduced.

California's first regional earthquake warning system

The Coachella Valley will establish the first regional earthquake warning system called the Coachella Valley Regional Earthquake Warning System (CREWS). CREWS will fund the expansion of the existing Early Warning Network and the installation of EEW alert devices within the public schools using Seismic Warning Systems latest technology. CREWS will also be responsible for the development of EEW procedures and education efforts. For more information visit the CREWS site:
