UT EQ Resiliency Workshop

A wonderful resource for earthquake safety and preparedness has just been released. The report was developed by the Utah Chapter of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) and was prepared for the Utah Seismic Safety Commission.

The Scenario for a Magnitude 7.0 Earthquake on the Wasatch Fault-Salt Lake City Segment: Hazards and Loss Estimates report provides information about the effects of the Wasatch fault scenario earthquake-in particular, how long it may take the state of Utah and its residents to fully recover and the potential long-term impacts on Utah’s economy. The ultimate goal of this report is to catalyze public and private actions that will increase pre-disaster resiliency through earthquake preparedness-being prepared to WITHSTAND, to RESPOND, and to RECOVER.
