FEMA 395, Earthquake Safety and Mitigation for Schools

The training is for school officials, teachers, facility managers, and other stakeholders interested in reducing earthquake risks in local schools.  Numerous school buildings located in multiple states and U.S. territories are vulnerable to earthquake damage that threatens safety and continued operations.  In this training, participants learn how to: (1) assess and analyze seismic risks; (2) develop actionable plans for reducing and managing these risks; (3) secure nonstructural elements of school facilities; and (4) use “incremental seismic rehabilitation” as an affordable approach for protecting existing buildings and ensuring occupant safety.
