Innovation in a seismic zone

Are you ready for the big one? I participated in an Oregon Business MagazineQuake Smart” panel discussion today in the Key Bank Club at Providence Park and learned quite a bit about disaster preparedness and resilience. We had a lively discussion and I contributed some thoughts around the technologies and social network building initiatives that could help push earthquake preparedness forward. Here’s a great summary of the discussion in Oregon Business.

Some key questions and answers:

What is the best way for community members to learn more?   

How can you stay in touch with action plans?

  • Information on your intranet
  • Facebook Groups or Nextdoor with your neighbors
  • Connect advocacy and advisory working groups to coordinate efforts across regions, sectors, and other stakeholder groups through tools like FMYI

What are some technologies for the aftermath?
