Earthquake Versus Wine Rack in New Video from Totally Unprepared
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
What happens when a large earthquake simulator meets a pricey wine collection? Find out in the first Will It Shake installment from Totally Unprepared, as hostess Susan Jekarl heads to the University of California, San Diego to show viewers what happens when the earth starts moving and bottles start flying.
UCSD is home to the Jacobs School of Engineering, where a large shake table is used to test models and structures to see how well they hold up against the forces of earthquakes. The wine rack doesnt stand a chance.
This latest video is part of Totally Unprepareds Will it Shake series videos which showcase the impacts of an earthquake on common household items and the importance of securing such items to prevent damage and injury.
The Totally Unprepared campaign is a year-long collaborative effort between the California Emergency Management Agency, the California Seismic Safety Commission (CSSC) and the California Earthquake Authority (CEA). It is a unique and insightful multimedia campaign which aims to help Californians better understand their risk of earthquakes and how to prepare for them.
Based on recent research about what does and does not motivate people to prepare, Totally Unprepared uses social media, video, and mobile applications to increase pervasiveness of earthquake preparedness issues. A special 30-minute program is also being aired on twelve California Public Television Stations throughout the month of September.
