Join us for our first-ever webinar! This event is held in lieu of our annual meeting. The annual meeting, usually a potluck held in March, was canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Given the ongoing situation and Inyo County directives, our Board determined it is safer to continue to remain distanced. But we don’t want to hold off on our popular presentations!

So we invite you to join us on March 19, 2022 at 3 p.m. for a Zoom presentation by Cynthia Pridmore titled Ridgecrest Earthquake Sequence 2019 – Insights from the California Earthquake Clearinghouse.

Please email us at info@fecm.org to reserve your spot. We will send you the link closer to the date

About our speaker Cindy Pridmore has been an engineering geologist with the California Geological Survey for over 30 years. As part of the State of California geotechnical earthquake and tsunami response, she has participated in post-event scientific data collection to better understand events that have affected California, including the 2014 Napa earthquake and the recent 2019 Ridgecrest earthquakes.

She was appointed Chair of the California Earthquake Clearinghouse in February 2019. She works closely with the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services on earthquake, tsunami, and volcanic hazards. She serves on the national and state communication, education, and outreach committees for the US West Coast ShakeAlert earthquake early warning program.

Cindy and her husband Gary Taylor, also a geologist, consider Independence their second home. Gary grew up in Independence and his family has resided in the Owens Valley for several generations.
