Post-Earthquake Recovery

California is known all over the world for its sun and surf, its tech, glamour, and optimism. But it is known too as "Earthquake Country" — a truly vulnerable region where big devastating quakes have occurred in the past and could happen again. No one can predict when the next massive earthquake will rock California, but new research suggests we are edging closer to the big one.

Back in 1989, when the Loma Prieta Earthquake hit, Bigge's recovery crew worked hand in hand with the Oakland fire Department to rescue survivors, secure unstable structures, and remove debris. Pictured here is a visit from President George H. W. Bush to meet the Bigge crew working at the recovery site of a collapsed elevated freeway.

It is unlikely that California would experience an event on the scale of recent disasters in Italy or Japan. California has learned from its past disasters, and most buildings are designed to withstand major quakes. Nevertheless, Californians are worried, and Bigge is prepared to come to the rescue with it’s trained personnel and equipment to provide the fastest relief at the time each second counts.
