Summary:
Massachusetts-based Blue Cod Technologies to participate in the 2011 Great California Shake Out.



On August 23, 2011, a 5.8 magnitude earthquake near Richmond, Va. sent shockwaves up the East Coast including New England. Although the Commonwealth emerged unscathed, the earthquake served as a wakeup call for the region. In response, Blue Cod Technologies has registered as an official 2011 Great California ShakeOut site to share information on how to better prepare, protect and recover from an earthquake.

Blue Cod Technologies is a managed insurance service that has a unique connection to helping improve earthquake protection for Californians from an insurance-coverage perspective. During the last 5 years, we have worked closely with the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) and member carriers to help bring better earthquake insurance coverage to homeowners affected by an earthquake in the Golden State. As a ShakeOut site will we can now help by educating the public on how to better protect themselves from a personal safety perspective.
