PEER Advising on Preparedness Site: QuakeCAFE – Attend the Public Forum on February 11, 2016

PEER is in an advisory role on new mobile-friendly website called QuakeCAFE, an initiative by the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS).

Launched by the CITRIS Connected Communities Initiative at UC Berkeley in collaboration with the Office of the Lt. Governor of California, QuakeCAFE provides Californians with a powerful tool that allows them to quickly and easily assess their level of preparedness, and compare their readiness for the Big One with others across the state. It works on all screens and takes only a minute to complete:

A public forum will be held to discuss the data and lessons learned from QuakeCAFE followed by a panel discussion on innovations for earthquake early warning, preparedness, and response. California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and Prof. Ken Goldberg and the QuakeCAFE team will be joined by Prof. Peggy Hellweg from the UC Berkeley Seismological Lab; Dr. Ross Stein, co-founder of Temblor, a startup that enables people to learn their seismic hazard and how to reduce their risk; and Amina Assefa, Manager of the Office of Emergency Management, UC Berkeley.

DATE & TIME: Thursday, February 11, 2016, 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM (PST)

LOCATION: Sutardja Dai Hall – Banatao Auditorium – 2594 Hearst Avenue Berkeley, CA 94720
