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

What would you do after an earthquake?

As a 5.1 magnitude earthquake hit Los Angeles this evening, we felt it validated the topic we brought up in our last poll/post. “What would do for water in a natural disaster?”. While it might seem like a random question we asked, it is a very real one, that was proven not so random tonight. You might wonder what you would do, but when you can not predict a possible emergency, are you prepared ahead of time?

Have you stockpiled water? If not, you need to consider what you would do if your local water main breaks, or is contaminated. Or what if the earthquake (hurricane, tornado, etc.) caused your local roads to collapse, or be blocked by debris. Can you survive in your home for a few days, until you can reach a shelter, or purchase water?

That’s one of our goals, to provide a solution in an emergency. With an EcoloBlue Atmospheric Water Generator, you will already have pure drinking water at your disposal. You can also be storing the excess for a situation like this. In the case of a possible power outage as well, you can always be prepared with solar power or a gas generator.

Give it some thought…
