Seven weeks. Fifteen hundred miles. Thirty-six thousand coloring books. It’s been nearly two months since California Watch published its "On Shaky Ground" series on seismic safety in California’s public schools, but the stories’ publication did not mark the end of our efforts to cover the issue and engage Californians. During these past several weeks, I’ve traveled the state – from Oakland to Chula Vista – hosting earthquake preparedness trainings, attending safety fairs, and introducing kids to earthquake preparedness through classes, puppet shows and coloring books. Here’s a closer look at our efforts.
