"How to Prepare for the Next Big Bay Area Earthquake," a talk by Tom Brocher *80

Please join us for a special talk by Princeton alum Tom Brocher *80 on earthquake disaster preparedness and a general update on hazards for the Bay Area from the USGS Earthquake Science Center in Menlo Park.

We'll discuss the latest USGS update on the earthquake hazards in the Bay Area.  We'll talk about some of the big earthquakes in our past, including the damaging 1868 Hayward, the 1906 San Francisco, and the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquakes.  And we'll explain what earthquake early warning is all about.  Then we'll discuss the steps you can take now, during, and after the earthquake that will get you on the road to recovery more easily. 

Tom Brocher *80 studies earthquakes at the USGS Earthquake Science Center, in Menlo Park, where he has worked for 32 years. He served as Director of the Earthquake Science Center for several years and prior to that served as the USGS Coordinator for Northern California Earthquake Hazard Investigations. His interests include earthquake hazard assessment, earthquake mitigation, and earthquake preparedness. Tom served as chair of the 1868 Hayward Earthquake Alliance, a public/private non-profit organization seeking to increase public awareness of that earthquake and the hazards posed by the Hayward Fault.  He is a fellow of the Geological Society of America and has published over 160 peer reviewed papers.
