During the workshop, participants will learn from nationally-recognized earthquake subject matter experts about: Earthquake activity in Texas and frequency and potential for damaging earthquakes; How damaging earthquakes may affect critical infrastructure and potential impacts to citizens and government; Unique challenges emergency management and responders face during earthquake response and recovery (and what to do about it); and Resources and tools available to support earthquake planning, mitigation, and community resiliency.
