Why We Need Earthquake Preparedness


Before. During. After.

In order to truly Outsmart Disaster, it’s not enough to know what to do after an earthquake strikes; the before and during are just as important. The good news: Many pre-event actions that help reduce negative earthquake impacts can also apply to other disasters. In other words, businesses who approach disaster reduction goals holistically and proactively will realize many benefits.

HayWired will strengthen communities through action and education on the immediate and long-standing earthquake effects thereby keeping natural disasters from becoming ongoing, cascading catastrophes.

What’s Been Done


It’s not all gloom and doom when it comes to earthquake preparedness. We are not starting from scratch; a ton of investment — both financially and in human-hours — has been devoted to ensuring individuals, businesses, and technology is prepared when the next earthquake shakes the ground in the Bay Area.

Be In the know


However one defines success when it comes to earthquake readiness, being prepared is critical. And while a ton of resources have been poured into preparation, there is still more work to be done.

With the support of our partners, HayWired continues to dedicate resources to guide businesses and communities on how to best Outsmart Disaster.
