Presenter: Steven Eberlein, Tipping Point Resilience 

Steve Eberlein and Lydia Ledgerwood were living in Sri Lanka when a 9.1 subduction zone earthquake off the coast of Indonesia triggered a massive tsunami that took 230,000 lives in more than a dozen countries, including 35,000 in Sri Lanka. As aid workers, they were active witnesses to one of the largest multi-national relief efforts in history, starting from its earliest hours. In 2006, they returned to their native Oregon only to learn that the Pacific Northwest, too, is due for a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami event like that that they had just experienced. Steve will be sharing:

  • His experience of the Boxing Day Tsunami in Sri Lanka
  • How we unwittingly propagate a culture of unpreparedness
  • The science and history of Southern California earthquakes
  • Human instincts, group behavior, and the danger of “amygdala hijack”
  • “Drop/cover/hold-on” and other shaking scenarios
  • Securing household and office furniture
  • The infrastructural impact of a major seismic event
  • Business continuity case studies for companies in earthquake zones
  • Earthquake Early Warning overview and applications
