Earthquake early warning. Protecting lives and property


Aug 24, 2014. Our hearts go out to those effected and the displaced families that have had to seek shelter due to damaged homes and disrupted utilities. Our gratitude is with the local first responders, community organizations and CalOES helping to meet the needs of the families affected by this disaster.

The extensive damage inflicted is a reminder of the compounding impacts of the areaís topography and that our preparation for earthquakes needs to be focused on urban centers and AUTOMATED responses. We are pleased that our Earthquake Warning Systems deployed in Vallejo, CA were in place to assist fire fighters help ensure they were not delayed in responding.
