The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program: FEMA Accomplishments in Fiscal Year 2011
The National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) seeks to mitigate earthquake losses in the United States. FEMA is responsible for developing effective earthquake risk reduction tools and promoting their implementation, as well as supporting the development of disaster-resistant building codes and standards. The report provides many examples of replicable state best practices, projects, and initiatives for mitigating earthquake risk and increasing the disaster resilience of our communities. Some of the exciting projects accomplished by the FEMA Building Science Branch are also highlighted in the report, including the release of ROVER, a software tool to screen buildings for seismic risk; FEMA E-74, Reducing the Risks of Nonstructural Earthquake Damage, a new electronic publication posted on the FEMA website; the QuakeSmart Earthquake Mitigation Toolkit for Businesses, FEMA P-811DVD; and two new earthquake training courses: Earthquake Basics—Science, Risk, and Mitigation, IS-325, and a train-the-trainer course, Home and Business Earthquake Safety and Mitigation, FEMA P-909.
