Seattle Chapter May Dinner Meeting: The Pacific Northwest Strategy for Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) Outreach, Education, and Training

EEW systems combine earthquake science with monitoring systems that detect and monitor earthquakes. When an earthquake attains a specified level, an EEW system issues an alert that may allow automated systems and people to take protective action before potentially damaging shaking arrives. In the U.S., EEW pairs the development and implementation of the ShakeAlert system with activities that promote 
end user awareness, education, and training on life-saving actions. The purpose of this Pacific Northwest Strategy for EEW Outreach, Education, and Training is to define a path forward for state and local government in Oregon and Washington to contribute to the successful development, implementation, and preparedness activities associated with EEW in the U.S.
