ABSTRACT

FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Business Increases its Involvement in Earthquake Mitigation   [open pdf - 36KB]

Alternate Title: Businesses Increase Involvement in Earthquake Mitigation

"The FEMA Best Practices Portfolio consists of mitigation stories submitted by individuals and communities that describe measures they have taken to reduce the loss of life and property from disasters. These Best Practices are meant to provide ideas and concepts about reducing losses and to encourage others to evaluate their own risk and consider mitigation as a long-term solution to reducing that risk." [...] "What do Starbucks Corporation, the Boeing Company, and the Friday Harbor Flower Shop have in common? All are businesses, all are located near Seattle, and all are taking an active role in keeping their employees safe and making their businesses more disaster resistant from earthquakes and other hazards." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
