QuakeSmart Toolkit: Earthquake Publications for Businesses
Developed by FEMA NEHRP, QuakeSmart is an initiative to help businesses in at-risk seismic communities start and maintain earthquake mitigation efforts. The QuakeSmart Toolkit (www.fema.gov/earthquake-publications/quakesmart-toolkit-table-contents) provides actionable and scalable basic guidance and tools to the private sector about the importance of earthquake mitigation and the simple things that they can do to reduce the potential of earthquake damages, injuries, and financial losses. Information contained in this toolkit walks you through a three-step process: 1) identify your risk; 2) make a plan; and 3) take action. The toolkit is not intended to be all-inclusive of available FEMA guidance related to earthquake mitigation and businesses should address all hazards they are exposed to. This toolkit was specifically developed to encourage businesses to incorporate earthquake mitigation in their decision making and planning process to enhance their all-hazards resilience, particularly from an earthquake event.
