Event description
Dr. Jones will show and tell us how to be a better prepared community for the coming 8+ magnitude earthquake, with shaking lasting MINUTES!

About this Event

Our community’s risk from natural disasters is increasing, and Southern California is just waiting for the Big One (8+ magnitude earthquake) to hit, with shaking lasting for MINUTES and not mere seconds as with the 1994 Northridge earthquake. When homes, businesses, and our infrastructure is destroyed, societal functioning itself is in danger of collapsing. Dr. Jones will show us that through science and effective planning, we can better understand what the risk is and how to address it. We all have a role to play in making our communities much more resilient to these future disasters through the choices we make today and tomorrow.

Dr. Lucy Jones is the founder of the Dr. Lucy Jones Center for Science and Society, with a mission to foster the understanding and application of scientific information in the creation of more resilient communities. She is the author of The Big Ones (Doubleday, April 2018) and is also a Research Associate at the Seismological Laboratory of Caltech, a post she has held since 1984. Working with both the public and private sectors, Dr. Jones seeks to increase communities’ ability to adapt and be resilient to the dynamic changes of the world around them. The aim is to understand and communicate where the greatest vulnerabilities lie and what actions can be taken to reduce the risk that are the most cost-effective. With a Bachelor of Arts in Chinese Language and Literature from Brown University and a Ph.D. in Geophysics from MIT, Dr. Lucy Jones has been active in earthquake research for decades, furthering earthquake risk reduction through seismological research and integrated disaster scenarios.

Presented and sponsored by Southern California Preparedness Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. Co-sponsored by Patriot Oil Community Benefit Trust Fund, as administered by the North Valley Coalition.
