The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is pleased to announce the release of the updated Directory of FEMA Earthquake Partners, August 2012.
Developing and strengthening partnerships for building safer communities underlies all of the initiatives and activities carried out by FEMA in support of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP). The Directory of FEMA Earthquake Partners supports those partnerships by providing contact information for more than 300 organizations and individuals involved in earthquake mitigation. The Directory includes the following groups:
- NEHRP Agencies
- Advisory Committee on Earthquake Hazards Reduction
- FEMA Regional and Headquarters Earthquake Program Managers
- State Earthquake Program Managers
- Regional Earthquake Consortia
- Seismic Safety Commissions, Committees, and Councils
- Universities and Academic Research Centers
- Non-Governmental Partners
Not all of the organizations listed under Non-Governmental Partners have a mission based on earthquake mitigation. Some organizations are included because their constituents, such as homeowners, school children, and property insurers, will benefit from or have a significant interest in earthquake mitigation. The Directory also lists the in-house resources of FEMA’s partners, such as journals, magazines, or newsletters, through which FEMA and other organizations can promote their earthquake publications and resources, best practices, and news of important events and activities.
The Directory is a “living” document and is updated on a regular basis. If you believe your organization should be included in the Directory, or if you have an update to an organization or individual already listed, please email Francoise Arsenault at farsenault@briconsultingroup.
To view or download the Directory, please visit the FEMA Library, Directory of FEMA Earthquake Partners.
