Chuck Payne

Chuck Payne is a Professional Geologist working in the Bay Area. During his career in the environmental site assessment/remediation industry he has been immersed in the culture of safety, which emphases communication about hazards and mitigation of risk. Both through his education and first hand experience (while in Santa Cruz in 1989 during the Loma Prieta earthquake) he knows what can happen when the immense forces of interacting plates release their stored energy in the form of an earthquake. Thus, over many years he has researched and prepared for the next major earthquake.
