FREE! FEMA P-58 Series and Training Seminar

ATC is pleased to announce the availability of the FEMA P-58 Series, Seismic Performance Assessment of Buildings, Methodology and Implementation, prepared by the Applied Technology Council (ATC) for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

This training seminar will be held on Wednesday, August 28, 2019, and will provide an overview of the newly available FEMA P-58 tools and guidance for design, examples on simplified and detailed implementation of the methodology, and information on the expected performance of code-conforming buildings.

Registration for this event can be done independently through this page, or as an option when registering for the SEAOC Convention here.  Registration for the convention is not a requirement to attend this seminar.

The first of three scheduled webinars on Earthquake Safety and Mitigation for Schools, sponsored by FEMA, was held on January 20 and drew 300 attendees. Two additional webinars will be held on February 17 and March 17, respectively. Registration is free and is available on the Events tab on this website.

The one-hour webinar has been designed for school officials, teachers, facility managers, and other local stakeholders interested in learning how to reduce earthquake risks and take actions to ensure school safety and continue operations.
