Southern California residents flock to emergency supply stores to stock up on earthquake kits. Eight Brits that were stranded in a monastery in Nepal were airlifted to safety yesterday, a week after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit the country, killing more than 7,000 people. At least one Pasadena firefighter has attended almost every relief effort since the initial trip, including Katrina, the Philippines, Indonesia after the tsunami, and Oklahoma and Alabama after tornado storms there. He requested additional funding for the USGS Earthquake Hazards Program to jump-start the process of building the early warning system so California can be ready for the next big quake.
Even in the case of an earthquake or other emergencies, turn off your gas meter ONLY if you smell gas or hear gas leaking. Even worse, some people believe having stored food supplies and a few thoughts about what they would do in an emergency is being prepared. The City of South Pasadena implemented Connect South Pasadena so city officials can stay connected to residents and efficiently provide them with direction in the event of an earthquake, fire or other public emergency.
Born and raised in Southern California, Marquez was part of the first six-person relief team that went to Haiti in January of 2010 after the devastating earthquake. In other words, being prepared means not only having supplies but having a written plan that includes training and practice.
The sensors are key to the system since these track an earthquake’s waves from the epicenter to populous areas like San Francisco and Los Angeles. If the venting system becomes separated during an earthquake, it could leak hazardous fumes to your home. Using Connect South Pasadena, City officials can record and send personalized voice messages to home phones, businesses, local agencies and mobile phones in just minutes. Better yet, make sure your home is equipped with earthquake Activated gas shut off valve from Kevin Shaw Plumbing, Inc.

Pasadena Firefighter Tim Okimura and Su-Nil Chhetri load supplies into a van at the international airport in Kathmandu. PASADENA >> A group of firefighters were honored by the City Council Monday after returning from relief efforts in Nepal. Nepalese earthquake-affected victims salvage belongings from their damaged homes in Lalitpur, on the outskirts of Kathmandu, Nepal. Publicly available primary residential and business phones in the City of South Pasadena will automatically be included in the system. Local Congressman Adam Schiff today said Congress had approved $5 million in funding to improve and expand the reach of an earthquake early warning system covering California and the West Coast. Having hundreds more sensors that instantly measure ground movement will enable scientists to flash earthquake alerts to mobile phones and computers from a central computer system.
Pasadena Now has been published daily since April, 2004 and is among the very oldest continously operated community news websites in the U.S. Successful emergency preparedness means having enough food, water, medicine, first aid supplies, hygiene products, flashlights, batteries, clothing and other supplies for each person and pet in your household to last a minimum of three days to week, or longer, if possible.
Pasadena Now strives to publish a full spectrum of news and information articles in service to the entire community. The funding will take California closer to deploying an extensive early earthquake warning system throughout its earthquake prone regions. Yesterday, Feinstein in Washington said an earthquake early-warning system is essential to save lives, reduce property damage and protect critical infrastructure.
With the current ongoing trend toward accumulation of emergency preparedness supplies, you may be surprised to know our collection of safety and emergency response products and outdoor supplies has actually been growing since our store’s inception in 1989.
If there is a need for an earlier appointment for more time in selecting or ordering large quantities of supplies, please call the store.

ShakeAlert was developed by the USGS along with Pasadena’s Caltech and other universities. The choice of the Seismological Laboratory as the venue for this announcement was particularly appropriate since the Lab is a focal point for earthquake information in Southern California and the world. For example, what action should be taken in the event of a fire versus an earthquake or flood. Marine helicopter that disappeared earlier this week while on a relief mission in the earthquake-hit Himalayan nation, and officials said it was unlikely there were any survivors from the crash. To help prevent your water heater from moving or toppling in an earthquake, strap it firmly to the wall studs in two places — the upper and lower one-third of the tank — with heavy bolts and metal tape. Schiff has led efforts to get congressional funding for the early earthquake warning system. Now is the time to stock up on at least 72 hours worth of emergency supplies that add to your safety and comfort during and after an earthquake. Marquez serves on the Urban Search and Rescue Team, the highest classified in the state, at the Pasadena Fire Department Station 32, but he also has a global vision.
One of the biggest messages he brought back to Pasadena after his 2010 Chile trip is to focus on being self-sufficient for much longer than just a 72-hour period.
