First, I must apologize - I am the worst blogger in the world. I have thought about seeing if someone would like to blog on my behalf, but the truth is, only I can blog in my voice.
ShakeAlarm® is exploding all over the West Coast; just last week we did a presentation in Seattle and folks there are looking at deploying systems in Seattle, and around the Puget Sound. It is a very exciting time because we are the only commercially proven EEWS out of Canada, and most of the United States.
We have expanded ShakeAlarm®s sales net too - we now have representation on Vancouver Island, and through our American partners out of Oregon.
Our Facebook page is already 800 likes strong and growing on a daily basis!
Again, I apologize for being such a horrid blogger - I will attempt to do better.
Ciao for now!

Apologies for being somewhat distant, we have been really busy putting together all this new and good stuff!
First off; www.facebook.com/shakealarm is up and running - and if I may be so bold, having some pretty fantastic results! We have already eclipsed 300 likes and are growing by 10 -12 likes a day!
Second, www.shakealarm.com is getting a whole bunch of new documentation, case studies and questionnaires! Be sure to go and check it out!
And finally, Oregons first earthquake early warning system (ShakeAlarm) has been installed in a brand new building, called the Radiator Building; very cool, be sure to check out http://www.onenorthpdx.com/links
And once more, my apologies - I will try and be a better blogger!
Take care for now!

Corefirst, http://corefirst-seismic-upgrade-system.com/ , has just entered into an agreement with Weir-Jones to promote our EEW system, ShakeAlarm, http://www.shakealarm.com into a number of markets in the United States.
Corefirst's unique, patented design allows for a cost effective solution in the world of seismic refits in Zone 1 earthquake areas, when the option of building new structures is not viable. This design allows for people to seek shelter within a structure if the Weir-Jones ShakeAlarm only allows for a few seconds of early warning.
We are of the opinion that by combining a structural solution, along with an EEWS, we are in a much better place to save lives, minimize damage to infrastructure and recover more quickly from a significant seismic event.
Corefirst and Weir-Jones - your total EEWS and structural solution.

Just a quick note to let everyone know that www.shakealarm.com is live!
ShakeAlarm is a cost efficient Earthquake Early Warning System (EEWS) that we have deployed throughout the lower mainland, and up the Fraser Valley.
We plan on expanding the 'News' section on the ShakeAlarm site to keep everyone in BC up to date with this state of the art technology.
Many thanks to Brendan at IG Web Designs for continuing to make everything look AWESOME!

Back from a spectacular weekend after a phenomenally successful Open House last Friday!
Kim and Christoph from Brisco Manufacturing (the folks who manufactured our flooring system) gave an AWESOME presentation about the LVL product, and Iain from Weir-Jones also made a few comments to all who were here!
Perry and Chris, our resident finishing carpenters, put a big effort on in order to get the front reception area done, and it looks great!
We also got the opportunity to meet Brendan Reilly, our web/marketing designer - at last! He proved to be as affable in person as he has been over the phone for the last year +; we hope he will stay on with us and continue to produce these very attractive pieces for marketing!
The caterers were lovely, and one of the shrimp wraps attacked me and stained my shirt - about the only fail we suffered. The caterers remedied the shirt with soda water and beer - beer for me, soda for the shirt!
And, we got an opportunity to showcase of Earth Quake Early Warning System, Shake Alarm - this amused a couple of kids as we had them try to 'induce' a seismic event in the building, then showed them how the accelerations were being captured on the monitor, lots of good fun!
All told, it was a great event, and only the beginning to the weekend...!
(And it would appear I have figured out how to post pictures...!)
