"As we saw this week, we never know when a disaster is coming and being prepared for any emergency is essential wherever you live," said MMRGlobal Chairman and CEO and earthquake preparedness expert Robert H. Lorsch. "The earthquake on the East Coast and the weekend's forecasted hurricane Irene are reminders of how important it is to protect your family's medical records and other important documents. Having a Personal Health Record or safe deposit box is the secure and convenient way to keep control of lifesaving medical records, marriage and birth certificates, family photos, real estate records and other important documents. After a disaster strikes, having these important documents can make the difference in how we apply for insurance claims and reestablish credit after the worst of scenarios."

During the previous administration, the Company received presidential recognition and a special award from the Small Business Administration for its comprehensive electronic Personal Health Record and disaster preparedness management and communications system. Lorsch previously co-chaired the California State and the Los Angeles City and County Earthquake Preparedness Committees for which he was awarded the prestigious "C" Flag Private Sector Initiative by President Ronald Reagan. The Award came in consideration of his work in support of the education of school-age children on earthquake preparedness. Lorsch continued his work with disaster preparedness in Los Angeles and then Japan over more than 10 years. He also co-chaired the first Los Angeles worldwide Earthquake Preparedness Conference. His efforts have also earned him awards from the City and County of Los Angeles, the State of California and FEMA.
