PEER at First Responders Appreciation Day, July 23 – CA State Fair — a great success!

PEER shaker table at the 2015 California State Fair

PEER honored First Responders Appreciation Day on July 23 at the California State Fair with a demonstration of the PEER shaking table. The exhibit was a great opportunity to share literature about PEER & earthquake preparedness for families & communities, the PEER-UC Berkley lab and the College of Engineering lab.

The purpose of this exhibit was to provide hands-on experience with structural construction, lab-demonstration to test structures to dynamic earthquake loads, and give participants the opportunity to improve models after testing and to discuss topics such as tsunamis, fire, infrastructure and lifelines.
