Stan G Webb In Retirement Introduction

Stan G Webb In Retirement© Introduction
In my formative years (one year and seven months, to nearly seven), I lived in and grew up in Minto (Gold) Mining Country. Yes! There is still gold in those hills. Frenchie, a narly old prospector took me under his wing and taught me where to find gold. And, how to extract it. He was the first to put a bead of mercury in my the palm of my right hand and watch carefully as I played with it. I was three years old. Later that winter he put the pointy end of a shotgun under his chin, Although I am now mainly retired, I still maintain my BC Free Miner Certificate, I will always be licenced and I will always miss my friend, Frenchie.
My most memorable things from that time were on June 23, 1946, at 10:15 a.m. when a magnitude estimated at 7.0 Ms and 7.5 Mw earthquake struck. The main shock epicenter occurred in the Forbidden Plateau area northwest of Courtenay. It almost knocked me down. It shook my bones. I was 23 month old.
My second earthquake was Canada's biggest in recorded history.
Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Islands) earthquake struck the sparsely populated Queen Charlotte Islands and the Pacific Northwest coast at 8:01 p.m. PDT on August 21, 1949. The shock had a surface wave magnitude of 8.1 and a maximum Mercalli Intensity of VIII (Severe). I had just turn five years old and that one shook my being, to the depth of my soul.

There were bigger ones, of course. The Cascadia earthquake occurred along the Cascadia subduction zone on January 26, 1700 with an estimated moment magnitude of 8.7–9.2. The megathrust 'subduction zone' earthquakes involved the Juan de Fuca Plate from mid-Vancouver Island, south along the Pacific Northwest coast as far as northern California.

Most everyone knows that I think that the way everyone is looking at Cascadia is all upside down and backwards. Everybody.

Alone and uninsured, we will still need to take care of the after-effects of all of this ourselves. HOW ARE WE GOING TO PAY FOR IT ALL ? THIS WHERE IT GETS VERY, VERY SERIOUS ! - Senate Ways & Means Cascadia Subduction Zone Presentation Work Session, ...

SUMMARY:  Alone and uninsured, we will still need to take care of the after-effects of all of this ourselves.
STILL IT GETS PUSHED TO THE END OF A VERY BUSY AGENDA. This requires that we expect more from our leadership and that we elect serious, sober and somber people into office; NOT bratty, cute, entitled STUPID children.
Senate Ways & Means Cascadia Subduction Zone Presentation Work Session, Feb 12 2017

Peninsula Area Public Access
Presentations to the Washington State Senate Ways and Means Committee from a variety of Emergency Management Experts concerning the early warnings and preparedness of Cascadia Rising. Included here are presentations by Dr. John Vidale, Lt Colonel Clay Braun, Jim Buck (Clallam County) and Robert Ezelle. Thank you to TVW for permission to rebroadcast on PAPA TV.

GUIDE FOR APARTMENTS, CONDOS AND TOWNHOUSES
Did you know almost half of all British Columbians live in some form of multi-family housing complex? Living in an apartment, condominium or townhome, we tend to see our neighbours daily. Surprisingly, we don’t always get to know them on a personal level. In considering the steps to getting prepared, our neighbours are crucial to our health and well-being, especially when they are in such close proximity. When people know each other, they build a level of trust and are better able to work together during an emergency. The PreparedBC: Guide for Apartments, Condos and Townhomes will help you join forces with your neighbours so you know what to do, who to check up on and what resources are available should disaster hit. This guide should be used in addition to your building’s fire safety plan and can be personalized to align with any emergency or evacuation plans already created. It is intended to help you build a better level of preparedness for all owners and residents in your multi-family complex. Prepared neighbourhoods—whether a street, cul-de-sac or apartment floor—are resilient neighbourhoods. When you’re in it together, you’re stronger.

We will need one BOSS, who's job it is to see that everything is taken care of expeditiously and properly. Perhaps even ordering a Building-Wide Earthquake Evacuation and/or Fire Drill.

Step 3 Assign Responsibilities
It can be difficult to think clearly during and immediately after a disaster. Assigning responsibilities in advance will enable a faster and more coordinated response. In an emergency that affects your entire building or complex, leadership roles will need to be established.
Wardens and chief wardens should be identified to make decisions and communicate on behalf of residents.
In large buildings, consider identifying one or two wardens per floor. These individuals should keep a list of all residents on their floor and have a plan to account for them in an emergency or evacuation.
First-Aid attendants should also be identified to attend to anyone suffering from injuries. Be sure to identify alternates for each role as they become available.
Record each person’s role in a guide.
Chief Warden ¢ Responsible for directing wardens, liaising with emergency personnel, identifying what needs to be done at what time to ensure safety of all residents. ¢ Should have an inventory of residents (including those with mobility issues) and pets. ¢ Should know who can turn off utilities and where they are located.
Floor or Zone Warden ¢ Responsible for accounting for individuals on their floor or within their pre-identified zone.
A first step in all of this is to order enough of these Guides for each and every one of us tenants.

DECIDE who will assume Leadership.  A ship can only have one Captain, assertive, organized, resolved, and strong.

It must be someone residing in the building, the only ones that will be here, day and night, always.

One who is highly respected, with a COMMAND PRESENCE. One who will appoint a 2i/c or 2IC* – second in command, to immediately stand in for them if they are not available.

* The second-in-command (2i/c or 2IC) is the deputy commander of any British Army or Royal Marines unit, from battalion or regiment downwards. They are thus the equivalent of an executive officer in the United States Army. This terminology is also used in Canada and many other Commonwealth armies and other nations.

Perspective: a graphical comparison of earthquake energy release

Tsunami warning center scientists usually measure an earthquake's "size" with the moment magnitude scale rather than the older but more famous Richter magnitude scale. The moment magnitude scale is better suited for measuring the "sizes" of very large earthquakes and its values are proportional to an earthquake's total energy release, making this measurement more useful for tsunami forecasting. Moment magnitude numbers scale such that that energy release increases by a factor of about 32 for each whole magnitude number. For example, magnitude 6 releases about 32 times as much energy as magnitude 5, magnitude 7 about 32 times as much as magnitude 6, and so on. This animation graphically compares the relative "sizes" of some 20th and 21st century earthquakes by their moment magnitudes. Each circle's area represents its relative energy release, and its label lists its moment magnitude, its location, and the year it happened.

A magnitude 9.0 earthquake has just occurred off the BC coast. A
massive tsunami races towards land at the speed of a commercial
jet. Preparedness Now simulates this hypothetical, but realistic
disaster scenario and looks at what damage can be expected and what
people can do to prepare themselves.
