When the ground starts shaking during the next earthquake, will your building be resilient and safe so that you and your organization can bounce back?
Attend the 2013 Buildings at Risk Summit to learn how to best prepare your buildings to withstand and recover from California's next major earthquake. Showcasing experts and policy-makers, the Summit will address single-building solutions as well as the "whole-community approach" implemented in cities across the state.
This premiere annual structural seismic safety summit is a precursor to the "Great California ShakeOut" and serves to not only increase the awareness of seismic risk, but spur action. The sessions will stress the benefit of mitigation, best practices from the state's experts, and encourage synergy among those working to build a more resilient community and economy.
