Oregon APWA members are invited to a free online ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning workshop for water and wastewater providers. The workshop is Wednesday, October 26, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and is hosted by the ShakeAlert Technical Users Working Group, including the U.S. Geological Survey, the California Institute of Technology, the University of California Berkeley, the University of Washington, and the University of Oregon.
The ShakeAlert Earthquake Early Warning System can detect earthquakes so quickly that alerts can reach people before they feel shaking. Utilities can use ShakeAlert-powered technology to trigger preprogrammed actions that protect employees and vital facilities, from delivering overhead warnings to slowing down pumps. This workshop will highlight how ShakeAlert works and the steps to implementation.
