Bay Area Earthquake Resiliency
Link to register - https://www.same.org/San-Francisco/Events
SAME San Francisco Post is hosting a luncheon panel to discuss measures various Bay Area agencies are taking to minimize the loss of life and property through adopted codes, enforced retrofits, and the tiered approach to upgrading disaster response buildings and state office buildings. In this luncheon we will host:
- FEMA's Mitigation Building Sciences group
- City of Oakland's Earthquake Czar
- Zenith Engineers
The panel will discuss deficiencies in design and construction methods dating before the 1980's, how different areas along faults and liquefaction zones are affected, how public agencies view and upgrade disaster response buildings to higher standards, and reasons building owners are required to retrofit. Lunch will be sponsored by Simpson Strong Tie. Please join us for what promises to be a very insightful event.
