25 Year Anniversary of Loma Prieta Earthquake – Are You Prepared?

3 EcoloBlue

It’s been 25 years since the 6.9 magnitude earthquake shook the Bay Area. Water infrastructure has improved since then, in preparation of the next big one. But is it enough? The public will still rush to their local store to pick up water and supplies. And what has traditionally happened in many disaster situations, is that the water will be sold out in 3 hours. Then what? Cities, hospitals, military bases and organizations should look into EcoloBlue’s emergency A.C.E. Container, or an EcoloBlue Water Station, to create, bottle and distribute water in the event of an emergency. Plan ahead, and people won’t have to be reactive and panic in the event of a disaster.

Below is some informative news and tips on earthquake preparedness.

Water system upgrades almost complete. The Santa Clara Valley Water District, East Bay Municipal Utility District and the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission are strengthening major tunnels, improving pipeline joints and rebuilding dams. But thousands of miles of smaller distribution pipes still pose a challenge. LINK

Moraga-Orinda Fire District Chief Stephen Healy warned that emergency services may be overwhelmed after a large quake and unable to respond quickly to all the demands. He suggested residents store food, water, flashlights and batteries, and insure their home is properly bolted to its foundation and any masonry is structurally reinforced. LINK

Q: What do you hope can be learned from the ShakeOut?
A: First, I hope people will learn to drop, cover and hold on so that they’ll be prepared when they feel the next earthquake and they’ll know how to respond when an earthquake early warning system is eventually implemented in California. Second, I hope people will learn good earthquake preparedness habits. For example, the La Habra and Napa earthquakes showed again that water lines can break and people may have to rely on their own water for days to weeks. Everyone should store water. LINK

For hundreds of millions of years, the forces of plate tectonics have shaped the earth, as the huge plates that form the earth’s surface slowly move over, under and past each other. Sometimes, the movement is gradual. At other times, the plates are locked together, unable to release accumulated energy. When the accumulated energy grows strong enough, the plates break free. If the earthquake occurs in a populated area, it may cause many deaths and injuries and extensive property damage. All 50 states and 5 U.S. territories are at some risk for earthquakes. Earthquakes can happen at any time of the year. LINK

Toledo Owes $30,000 for Bottled Water – EcoloBlue has Long Term Water Solutions for the Same Cost

This is a perfect example of a solution that EcoloBlue can provide. For the same cost as Toledo is having to pay for the bottled water, they could have a machine that makes up to 1,000 liters of drinking water every day. The machine can be used as needed, or just stored until an event like this occurs. But instead of this onetime cost of buying bottled water, and creating all that plastic bottle waste, they can have a machine that can create up to 1,000 liters of water a day, for over 10 years (with proper maintenance). It is only logical. People need to be aware of these solutions, and then be proactive and not reactive when these situations arise.

Toledo’s water crisis left hundreds of thousands of water customers dry. Now the city owes the which sent bottled water during the crisis, Fastenal, over $30,000.

When the do not drink order was issued on the morning of August 2 people flocked to the stores for bottled water and a shortage was soon seen. The Ohio National Guard brought water but the city also called Fastenal to provide water bottles for the emergent need.

“I felt that the most important thing that we had to do was we had to be able to take panic out of the equation,” said Mayor D. Michael Collins.

A total of 177,408 bottles were delivered, which amounts to $38,427 the city now owes to Fastenal.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2014 UN Climate Summit Speech – EcoloBlue Can Help With Water Solutions

It is great to see a celebrity, such as Leonardo DiCaprio, using their influence to try and make a difference.

EcoloBlue wants to help reduce the strain on our natural resources, by supplementing water supplies where it is greatly needed, or to provide water where there just isn’t any. Whether due to failing infrastructure, dried up wells, contaminated water, or various other reasons, many people live with very little water, or water that is making them sick. Time to look for better solutions.

State of Emergency for South Napa Quake – Are you prepared?

Another reminder to us all that a natural disaster can happen at any time. There was much building damage, roads had buckled, water mains broke… Are you prepared? Do you have an emergency kit ready to go with at least 3 days worth of food and water for your family ready to go. Do you have the ability to make your own safe drinking water that you can store in the event of an emergency? You don’t want to have to compete with others depleting water from grocery stores.

A press conference on KTVU reported saying that many people were complaining about not having water, and that for those that do, a lot of mains will be shut off during a time to do the repairs. The spokesperson reported that some people could be without water for up to a week.

With our atmospheric water generators, you can create and store water. However, you might want to also consider a solar system or a gas generator to run your machine. That way, you are never without clean drinking water in an emergency, even when you have no power. Something to consider.

Governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency due to the damage resulting from the 6.1-magnitude earthquake centered in southern Napa County. The governor includes power outages to 69,000 area residents, continued aftershocks, and fires as additional reasons for this morning’s emergency declaration. The declaration allows all available state resources to be directed toward earthquake response efforts.

In a statement issued earlier Sunday morning, he said: “My Office of Emergency Services has been on full activation since early this morning and is working close with state and local emergency managers, first responders and transportation officials to respond to impacts to residents and critical infrastructure. These safety officials are doing all they can to help residents and those living in affected areas should follow their guidance and instruction.”

The 6.1 earthquake was reported at 3:20 a.m. about three miles northwest of American Canyon, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The U.S.G.S. also reported 2.5 and 3.6 magnitude aftershocks about four miles southwest of Napa at 5:01 a.m. and 5:47 a.m., respectively. Several smaller aftershocks have also been reported.
