You are invited to join the USGS for a congressional briefing titled, “Earthquake Early Warning: Every Second Counts.”
Imagine if doctors had time to stop delicate procedures before an earthquake. And if emergency responders had a few extra moments to gear up, airplane landings could be postponed, trains slowed, and people could move to safer locations. Come learn how the USGS and its partners are helping provide critical seconds of notification through an earthquake early warning system in the United States.
|When:||Friday, September 28, 2012|
This briefing will be held twice in Washington, DC.
10:00 a.m. in 1334 Longworth House Office Building
Seismological Society of America
