Increasing Earthquake Resilience‚Äč

Case Study: Mexico

Following the devastating 2017 earthquakes in Mexico, USAID and Roddenberry Foundation supported Grillo in the creation of a new Mexican earthquake early-warning system with 50 sensors.

The system has to date provided over 1000 alerts and is being used by 12,000+ users via phone app, home device and school loudspeakers.‚Äč
