June 3 – ShakeAlert Event (Earthquake Early Warning)

Join us on Monday, June 3rd for a panel discussion of Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) issues. The purpose is to engage EERI chapter members with some of the challenging questions surrounding EEW.

Our members advocate for reducing the effects of earthquakes on society, and EEW is an emerging newcomer to the collection of tools that we can use. Most EERI members are aware of EEW concepts and some are skeptical of its usefulness. The panel will aim discuss these concerns…so make sure to attend this exciting discussion!

The panel will feature three of our local experts:

  • Jennifer Strauss, UC Berkeley; Regional Coordinator for ShakeAlert, Northern  California; Vice-Chair, ShakeAlert Joint Committee for Communication, Education, and Outreach
  • Sara McBride, United States Geological Survey, Mendenhall Fellow – Research Social Scientist; Social Science Coordinator – ShakeAlert
  • Alejandro Cantu, SkyAlert USA, CEO

This panel will briefly introduce current plans for EEW followed by active discussion about possible concerns including questions from the audience.
