The recent news media has been filled with accounts of natural disasters in our part of the world. We are bombarded daily with pictures and videos of these catastrophic events: buildings, infrastructure, & property destroyed, people killed, others injured, and many isolated from help, food, water and other supplies needed for survival. Although these events did not impact us in the Bay Area directly, are we immune? Last week California experienced 24 earthquakes, and although the largest (in the Eastbay foothills) only registered a magnitude of 3.3 on the Richter scale, it is only a matter of time before we experience a seismic event large enough to have a local impact. Other types of events can also happen- floods from extreme weather, raging armed gunmen threatening our workplaces, facility-wide emergencies, or acts of civil unrest or terrorism.
