Non-Structural Earthquake Mitigation Guidance Manual
The purpose of this Non-Structural Earthquake Mitigation Guidance Manual is to help the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), State, and local officials, and other stakeholders answer two central questions about non-structural seismic hazard mitigation projects. 1. Are the levels of seismic hazard (i.e., the frequency and severity of earthquakes) high enough in a given community to warrant consideration of seismic hazard mitigation projects for some buildings or facilities? If not, then a community’s mitigation efforts and resources can better be focused on other hazards that pose a more serious risk for the community. 2. If the level of seismic hazard is sufficiently high to warrant consideration, how does a community identify the best cost-effective, non-structural seismic hazard mitigation projects from the wide range of possible projects?
