Quake Cottage, LLC Announces Quake Cottage™ 9.5 Earthquake Simulator

Public unveiling and earthquake preparedness event to take place in Beverly Hills, California in January 2016

LOS ANGELES--()--Quake Cottage, LLC, the original mobile earthquake simulator, announces the launch of its newest model, the Quake Cottage™ 9.5. The 9.5 model is the latest in an expanding fleet of mobile earthquake simulators, proven to be the most effective tool for inspiring action when it comes to preparation for earthquakes. Quake Cottage will be launching the high-intensity earthquake replicator at a public unveiling event at El Rodeo Elementary School in Beverly Hills, California.

“We are so proud of the Quake Cottage 9.5”

The Quake Cottage 9.5 is the largest simulator of its kind; the first unit in the fleet mounted directly onto a semi-truck. The simulator seats eight people back-to-back, with a dual interior to demonstrate how an earthquake would affect both residential and laboratory environments. Mounted televisions outside of the simulator display the experience in real time. Quake Cottage 9.5 also features an enhanced SeismoDrive™ system that realistically replicates strong earthquake forces. The unit has state-of-the-art graphics and sound environments to enhance the quality of the experience for the participants.

In addition to the simulator room, the Quake Cottage 9.5 also includes an on-board learning center, with an interactive informational kiosk. This kiosk features a huge interactive touch screen system that is programmable and can be modified to display information based on threats to any specific geographic region. The learning center describes local earthquake and tsunami threats along with preparedness news. Useful for industry professionals, facility managers and the general public, the learning center is a great way to get information about the practical dangers of natural disasters in a specific geographic location and how to best prepare for them.

“We are so proud of the Quake Cottage 9.5,” says Quake Cottage founder Michael Essrig. “This model will change the way we help people prepare for earthquakes. By connecting the simulator directly to the transportation vehicle, we can take the 9.5 anywhere in the United States, Canada and Mexico. It’s perfect for corporate group trainings and public preparedness events. This inaugural event will help us reach the people in Southern California and share the importance of disaster preparedness in all aspects of nature.”

The Quake Cottage 9.5 will launch the week of January 11, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California, in commemoration of the Northridge earthquake in 1994. Located at El Rodeo Elementary School at 605 Whittier Drive, the event will be open to the public, to experience and learn about the importance of earthquake preparation. City officials will be in attendance, and the learning center will have information about the risks of future earthquakes in the Los Angeles area.
