Mission/Purpose of the Meeting

The Bay Area Earthquake Alliance (BAEA) Loma Prieta 25 Partner Planning Meeting that will “kick off” the 25th anniversary activities and events marking the 1989 magnitude 6.9 Oct. 17th Loma Prieta earthquake. The Loma Prieta quake ended decades of seismic quietness in the San Francisco Bay Area and was a “wakeup” call to prepare for large earthquakes in the region. The meeting will look beyond disaster and focus on sharing successes in community resilience throughout the region and it will serve as an opportunity for all of us to come together under one umbrella to collaborate on fall ShakeOut and Loma Prieta commemorative activities. Join us and find out what other key organizations and preparedness partners are doing to mark the LP 25 anniversary!
