Creating a Seismic Safety Advisory Board (FEMA 266)


FEMAFEMA produced this guide to assist states, state coalitions, and local governments in creating, developing, and nurturing seismic safety advisory boards. The guide provides information on board operations, including staffing and funding a board, and guidelines for strategic planning and developing a model seismic risk management program to measure progress. The appendices include model executive orders and enabling legislation, staff duty descriptions, workshop design and rosters; examples of an interstate compact, articles of incorporation, and corporate bylaws; a list of existing seismic safety advisory boards; and a lexicon of terms.
