The Earthquake Preparedness Task Force Report. Revised.
A report on Earthquake Preparedness presents California school districts with direction for complying with existing earthquake preparedness planning laws. It first contains two sets of recommendations. The first set requires state action and is presented to the Legislature for consideration. The second set consists of policy statements and requires action by local school authorities. The document then details a model earthquake emergency procedure system, examines public schools as community shelter sites, describes an earthquake damage assessment procedure, and presents a list of equipment and supplies that schools should consider having on hand to provide minimum support during an extended crisis. Appendices contain hazard identification checklists; specific opinions, minority views or specific proposals from the Earthquake Task Force that supplement or contrast with this report; and earthquake-related California State legislative material.
