Application of Seismic Monitoring Systems for Post-Earthquake Building Safety Evaluations
KMI Information Series Webinar + Q&A!!!
Join as guest speaker Erik Bishop from Reid Middleton walks us through real-world events and case studies that describe how combining engineering and technology helps critical facilities achieve safe and effective earthquake response!
Lessons learned from past earthquakes have demonstrated that hospitals and other essential facilities are susceptible to dangerous, costly, and unnecessary evacuations. This is often due to the uncertainty in determining whether or not a structure is safe to occupy or needs to be evacuated immediately following an earthquake.
By combining advanced engineering, instrumentation technology, and disaster management software, Reid Middleton and Kinemetrics have collaborated to develop and deploy innovative post-earthquake response tools that empower on-site facility management personnel to rapidly make informed decisions on the post-earthquake condition of their buildings. This webinar will provide real-world case studies of how these tools can aid in post-earthquake safety assessments for hospitals and other essential facilities.
This informative webinar + Q&A will help engineers, building managers, and disaster preparedness professionals understand how to better protect buildings and people during an earthquake.
We look forward to seeing you there!
