Live Demos & Simulations
The Earthquake Expo provides a first-hand experience at the latest innovations that are designed and developed to inform and prepare you and your community from earthquakes, landslides, and other ground-based disasters in addition to demonstrating advanced earthquake protection technology and simulate the many instances and situations that occur during earthquakes and the resulting damage caused by its effects.
Witness demonstrations of the latest innovations being developed to mitigate earthquake and landslide damage. See how earthquake proof homes are designed to withstand the quakes and aftershocks that create structural failure as well as simulations of earthquakes and how it can cause damage to you and your community.
Have a look at some of the latest tech in development to mitigate earthquake damage like the seismic invisibility cloak, which helps to minimize seismic waves before they reach communities. Other materials like carbon-fiber wraps and rocking core walls are shown to create support that keeps infrastructure standing.
Understanding the must-know procedures like Drop, Cover, and Hold On during an earthquake and creating a family emergency communication plan are just some of the basic tips and tools to help you and those around you during an earthquake disaster. Even new tech in rescue efforts such as heartbeat sensors helps rescue teams discover those trapped under concrete and other building materials.
Be sure you get to experience the many demonstrations and simulations that help give you and those around you a better understanding to prepare and act when any ground-based disaster occurs.
