<<<Back to UR22

The national EEW rollout is complete by 2024. Where does that leave us in BC? What thresholds will activate public alerting? How does the EEW system connect to building-level instrumentation across the province and what does that mean for our rapid damage assessment programs? Hear from practitioners working in this space and contribute to the conversation.
This session will be hosted as a satellite session to the UR 2022 Global Forum hosted in Florianopolis, Brazil with satellites in London, UK, Wellington, New Zealand and Niamey, Niger. We will also host a watch party for the Global Forum in conjunction.

Hosted by: Monrit Chatha, Vice President EERI BC & RJC
Moderated by: Jessica Shoubridge, EERI BC & Program Lead for URBC, Founder & Principal of Thrive Consulting
John Sherstobitoff, Ausenco
Henry Seyward, Natural Resources Canada
