Our guest this morning is Jim Hone.
Jim is the former Santa Monica Fire Chief and has been involved in emergency and disaster response, recovery and training for more than 36 years.
Today, Jim is going to discuss Earthquake preparedness, response and recovery - as April is Earthquake Awareness Month - and in remembrance of the great quake of 1906 in San Francisco and our own Northridge quake 20 years ago.
Jim will share his experiences in Santa Monica following the Northridge EQ and the effects of more than $250 million in damages and more than 19.5 years of recovery before closing the reimbursement books.
Jim served on several local, state and federal disaster response teams and committees. He has responded to six Federal Disasters including the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing and the 2001 World
Section Chief at the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market Multi-Casualty Incident involving 79 victims including 10 fatalities.
Jim is also a regular guest on this show and we’re always thrilled to chat with him.
