NETAP Training Workshop

DATE/TIME: Monday 25-Jun-18 8:00 am - 12:00 pm ROOM: San Gabriel

DESCRIPTION: REGISTRATION REQUIRED: This half-day workshop, made available through the FEMA-funded National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program (NETAP), will provide training on FEMA P-58. Published in 2012, FEMA P-58 presented a methodology and an implementation tool for seismic performance assessment of buildings. The follow-on project, ATC-58-2, conducted by the Applied Technology Council with funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), has developed guidance on performance of code-conforming buildings and seismic design of new buildings, as well as improvements to existing tools, incorporating environmental considerations related to seismic performance of buildings. These documents and tools will be published in Spring 2018, and this 3-hour seminar will provide an overview of the newly available tools and guidance.

Media Interview and Press Conference Techniques and Practice

DATE/TIME: Monday 25-Jun-18 1:30 pm - 5:00 pm ROOM: San Gabriel

MODERATOR: Christine Goulet, USC;

DESCRIPTION: REGISTRATION REQUIRED: Learn best practices for interactions with news media, from 1-on-1 recorded interviews to live shots and press conferences, with a particular focus on science, risk, and crisis communications do's and don'ts. The majority of the workshop will be focused on simulating media interviews with several break-out groups of 5-6 attendees led by various coaches with experience in public information for science, engineering, and emergency management issues. Hosted by: Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC)

Friday 29-Jun-18: 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

LFE/SLC Workshop

DATE/TIME: Friday 29-Jun-18 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm ROOM: Santa Barbara

DESCRIPTION: REGISTRATION REQUIRED: The Student Leadership Council and EERI's Learning from Earthquakes Program are jointly organizing an earthquake reconnaissance workshop for 11NCEE attendees. This workshop will provide an overview of EERI's Learning From Earthquakes Program and training for EERI's field data collection tools. The workshop will include a field exercise that will give participants the opportunity to practice making reconnaissance observations using the demonstrated tools and visualizing them on an EERI virtual earthquake clearinghouse website. EERI members who complete this training will be well-positioned to contribute effectively to reconnaissance efforts following a future earthquake.
