Oregon ShakeAlarm™ System Installed with CoreFirst

The ShakeAlarm™ system, Oregon's first, has been tied into the gas feeds entering the building, and in the event of a large scale earthquake, will immediately shut off gas entering the building in an effort to mitigate fire damage should the lines get severed.

ShakeAlarm™ is currently going through site characterization work (the teaching of the algorithm to identify P-Waves, and ignore other sources of sound, such as traffic) and will be online in 60 days.

For any further information, please feel free to contact Kyle Rasmusens at 604 732 8821, or at kyler@weir-jones.com
