California Governor's Office, Sacramento.; California State Office of Emergency Services, Sacramento.
This publication is a guide for California colleges and universities wishing to prepare for earthquakes. An introduction aimed at institutional leaders emphasizes that earthquake preparedness is required by law and argues that there is much that can be done to prepare for earthquakes. The second section, addressed to the disaster planner, offers planning tips for a disaster management team, and how to set goals and plan updates. The third section looks at earthquake preparedness, examining particularly how to assess hazards, reduce hazards, educate the campus community, and acquire emergency equipment and supplies. The fourth section describes and outlines earthquake response including: typical problems, the incident command system, developing response priorities, management organization, supporting data for the campus plan, mutual aid agreements, department and building emergency plans, and emergency response training. A final section describes post-disaster recovery including planning for recovery, demolition, repair, rebuilding, and financing recovery and rebuilding. Appendixes contain sample job specifications for an emergency preparedness coordinator, summaries of legislation and applicable authorities, Stanford University's disaster response plan, a checklist for campus residence hall evacuation, and an outline of the cost recovery process through state and federal assistance.
