Earthquake Early Warning System

The USGS will be releasing the Earthquake Early Warning System for public use in 2018. All airports in the west will need to understand how this will directly impact shutdown of critical infrastructure, alerting to the public and changes in the airport safety systems.

Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)

The airports in the west are going to face serious legal and public relations problems if no activities take place in the aviation industry prior to the deployment in 2018. Airports through WESTDOG are now beginning to discuss how to face this challenge but their has been no direction from the federal government on changes to existing FAR's or how changes will be funded to install needed infrastructure and public alert systems.

Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)

The USGS will be releasing the Earthquake Early Warning System for public use in 2018. All airports in the west will need to understand how this will directly impact shutdown of critical infrastructure, alerting to the public and changes in the airport safety systems.
