This new version of FEMA 74, FEMA E-74 Reducing the Risks of Nonstructural Earthquake Damage—A Practical Guide, Fourth Edition, is designed to be used primarily online (www.fema.gov/earthquake-publications/fema-e-74-reducing-risks-nonstructural-earthquake-damage). The new format makes it simple to browse and to print out the relevant details. The purpose of the document is the same as for the original: to explain the sources of nonstructural earthquake damage in simple terms and to provide methods for reducing potential risks. Since nonstructural failures have accounted for the majority of earthquake damage in several recent U.S. earthquakes, it is critical to raise awareness of potential nonstructural risks, the costly consequences of nonstructural failures, and the opportunities that exist to limit future losses.
