PASADENA, Calif. – Warning residents that they need to be prepared for a major earthquake, scientists, elected officials and experts gathered at Caltech on Wednesday to urge people to take part in a major drill later this year to help them be ready for a massive temblor.

This drill is set for November 13, 2008 and is a great motivator and excuse if you need one to get that disaster recovery and preparedness plan you been meaning to complete done and distributed. One of the largest and most common roadblocks is the permission and buy in of corporate management and this widely publicized event should make it much easier to get that permission. Especially in light of the recent China earthquake and the ongoing relief efforts that has raised the visibility of this issue immensely.

I have been covering this subject in an ongoing series of posts that can be accessed on the right under the topic “disaster preparedness” and there are currently 3 posts in the series. I will be posting the next installment for this coming Monday.

As always I thank you for your time and interest. Please take the time to Digg, or add to the other social network of your choice to help me spread the word about these issues. Please forward any questions or suggestions to: askthefm@gmail.com
