On Thursday, October 15 at 8:30 a.m., Pivotal IT will be hosting Strong Foundations at the Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce, a workshop to encourage local businesses and organizations to prepare for earthquakes, floods and other hazards as part of the Great SouthEast Shakeout. ShakeOut began in Southern California in 2008 as a drill designed to educate the public about how to protect themselves during an earthquake, and how to prepare for natural and other disasters. Since then, it has grown into an internationally recognized campaign with millions of participants taking part each year. It is also a major activity of America’s PrepareAthon!, which is spearheaded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and is a grassroots campaign for action to increase community preparedness and resilience. Strong Foundations is a free event to help businesses and organizations analyze their risks and provide resources for creating and implementing Emergency and Business Continuity Plans to help establish a more resilient business community. Attendees will also be joining over 24 million people worldwide in practicing the Drop! Cover! and Hold! technique during the world’s largest earthquake drill!
