California Earthquake Program

With offices in Northern and Southern California, the OES Earthquake Program provides planning and technical assistance on various earth-related areas of concern. Program staff members work with local and regional governments, businesses, hospitals, schools, human service agencies, neighborhood and community organizations, and individuals to address, among other things, preparedness planning, hazard mitigation, emergency response, business resumption planning, post-earthquake shelter and housing, and the complexities of disaster recovery. Formed in 1993 by combining the Bay Area Regional Earthquake Preparedness Project and the Southern Earthquake Preparedness Project, the Earthquake Program concentrates its efforts in the most seismically active areas of California, but it is involved in earthquake preparedness and damage reduction efforts across the state.
