Combining Seismology, Structural Engineering and Behavioral Science
to Enable Better Earthquake Emergency Response

Featuring Dr. Derek Skolnik & Brandon Parrott, Kinemetrics, Inc.

Earthquakes present unique challenges to impacted regions, organizations, and individuals, and catastrophic consequences can result from improper decision-making during these emergency events.

As such, earthquake response systems must be optimized through a combination of science and technology that provides a foundation to deliver the information and tools required by a multitude of stakeholders before, during, and after the event.

If the system serves the engineering community but does not meet the needs of the public or emergency responders, its value can be called into question. Earthquake response systems serve multiple stakeholders and must address the needs of each in a manner consistent with their expectations – detailed technical information for scientists and engineers, actionable information for emergency responders, and safety instructions for the general public.

Maximizing the effect of these systems also requires that they be integrated into the everyday systems and processes of those who rely on them.

In this session, Dr. Derek Skolnik and Brandon Parrott from Kinemetrics will discuss how leading organizations use the OasisPlus Earthquake Response Platform to ensure quick, safe, and effective emergency response. The presentation will center on real-world examples, and describe how best to meet the needs of the various groups – the public, technical professionals, emergency responders, and decision makers – affected by a given earthquake.

This informative webinar + Q&A will provide a new insight into how to maximize situational awareness and ensure effective earthquake response.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Earthquake Early Warning Meets Actionable Information

Featuring Brandon Parrott, Kinemetrics, Inc.

What happens when you merge Earthquake Early Warning with all the information and tools you need to respond once the shaking hits?

You gain precious moments of warning to prepare for building motion, and the situational awareness you need to perform effective, responsible emergency response. This ultimately results in confidence, speed, and the best possible outcome.

OasisPlus is a Complete Earthquake Business Continuity Platform designed to provide the tools and information you need before, during, and after an earthquake to minimize impact and ensure an effective emergency response.

In this session, Brandon Parrott will introduce brand new functionality designed to bring earthquake early warning capabilities to the OasisPlus Platform. This new functionality extends your situational awareness prior to the building shake, and puts you in the best position to make better-informed decisions.

Join us for this informative webinar and Q&A session, and take advantage of the opportunity to see the merging of earthquake early warning with actionable building information.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Bridging Technology and Policy: The Case of Earthquake Early Warning Systems in the 2030 Agenda

Bridging Technology and Policy: The Case of Earthquake Early Warning Systems in the 2030 Agenda

Earthquake and Multi-Hazards Early Warning Systems (EWS) ) disseminates timely information about the eminent impact of hazards to the public, emergency responders, and managers in the public and private sector, providing time to implement emergency measures, including some automatically.

In this session, special guest speaker Dr. Jair Torres will discuss how recent international agreements such as the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) 2015–2030, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Paris Agreement, and the New Urban Agenda, have all recognized the importance of EWS in moving the development agenda forward.

This informative webinar + Q&A will focus on the challenges and opportunities of turning current technologies on Earthquake EWS into practice and policy.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Earthquake Early Warning – Benefits of Now-Casting

KMI Information Series Webinar + Q&A!!!

Join us to take a look at how to improve Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) systems.

EEW has a wide range of potential benefits from public alerts to machine interaction preventing loss of life and costly damages. It also has its limitations due to network topology, geological conditions, and processing uncertainties. Extending EEW to the immediate evaluation and alerting of the ground motion – Now-Casting – is a fantastic tool to improve earthquake warning systems.

In this session, Mathias Franke will demonstrate how real-time response spectra can deliver Now-Casting in new and existing EEW systems.

We look forward to seeing you there!
