Bracing ourselves for the next big one

SPUR Business Breakfast Series

8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
| Thursday, October 17, 2019

When the next earthquake comes, will you, your business and your community be prepared? In response to the Ridgecrest Earthquake earlier this summer, SPUR will take a look at how our business members can be prepared. In recognition of earthquake preparedness month, join us and Wayne Kalayjian as we dive into risk mitigation. Where might you, your building or the community be lacking protection? How will a warning system either hinder or empower our community during the seconds before a major natural disaster? Together we will explore answers to these questions.
