ABSTRACT

National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program (NETAP) Toolkit for Earthquake Program Managers   [open pdf - 2MB]

"In accordance with the Earthquake Hazards Reduction Act of 1977 (Public Law 95--124) and the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) Reauthorization Act of 2004 (Public Law 108--360), it is FEMA's responsibility to support the implementation of a comprehensive earthquake education and public awareness program, including development of materials and their wide dissemination to all appropriate audiences and support public access to locality-specific information that may assist the public in reducing earthquake risk. FEMA developed the National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program (NETAP) as a mechanism for delivering direct assistance to the public to increase their knowledge and ability to analyze their risk, make a plan, and take actions aimed at reducing their earthquake risk and supporting overall community resilience. NETAP is not a grant or cooperative agreement program, but a contract managed by FEMA to rapidly deploy specific assistance to organizations and communities."
