Develop a Culture of Preparedness Every household, government agency, and business must know the seismic risks of the buildings they occupy, the transportation systems they use, and the utilities that serve them, as well as the actions they can take to protect themselves.
Departmental Research Projects
Every household, government agency, and business needs to be prepared to be self-sufficient for at least three days 72 hours following a disaster. Citizens and governments need to take steps to ensure adequate response care for special needs and vulnerable populations. This can be done through region-wide, multi-organizational plans, training, exercises and coordination assessments, as well as continuing improvements in our collective understanding of seismic risks. Invest in Reducing Losses Building owners, governments, and the earth science and engineering professions must target potential collapse-hazard buildings for seismic mitigation, through retrofit, reduced occupancy, or reconstruction.
Governments and other relevant agencies must retrofit or replace all facilities essential for emergency response to ensure that they function following earthquakes. These facilities include fire and police stations, emergency communications centers, medical facilities, schools, shelters, and other community- serving facilities. Knowledge Center Search.
