Earthquake Answers

People in southern California commonly have questions about earthquakes and earthquake preparedness and planning. The abundance of publicly available information on the subjects can make it difficult to process and know how and what to implement. We strive to help southern California businesses and residents better understand and prepare for earthquakes. Our goal is to disseminate earthquake Knowledge, facilitate preparedness Action and improve Resilience.

Our approach


Our approach

We believe that the more earthquake knowledge you have the more likely you are to prepare. We conduct on-site earthquake safety evaluations, preparedness and planning consultations, and earthquake science and preparedness presentations.

We offer a path toward achieving earthquake readiness with customized preparedness plans and supplies, and we can schedule and perform the work ourselves.

This critical action service provides a way for our clients to prepare and increase their earthquake resilience without having to do the work themselves, and it gives them peace of mind knowing the work is done professionally.

What to expect

  1. On-site evaluations and consultations consist of a non-invasive walkthrough to identify objects in working/living spaces that may become hazardous during earthquakes. Basic earthquake principles (non-technical explanations of earthquake science) and earthquake safety planning (where to shelter during an earthquake, etc.) are explained and our recommended actions to prepare/secure your space for earthquakes are discussed. Within five business days of a consultation, our clients receive a customized report detailing our recommended action to take to better prepare for earthquakes (or we can do it for you!).

  2. Earthquake science and preparedness presentations typically consist of a 45 to 50 minute talk followed by a 15 to 20 minute question and answer session. Our presentations can be tailored to focus on a special topic of particular interest to an audience, but commonly focus on providing non-technical explanations of earthquake science to help the audience understand critical publicly available earthquake hazard information that is specific to their business or residential location.
