Hospitals and other healthcare facilities have unique nonstructural components, including equipment and infrastructure systems that can become sources of injury or damage during an earthquake. At the training, participants will be introduced to earthquake hazards and learn about methods to analyze and reduce risks of damage in hospitals and other medical buildings.By implementing sound, cost-effective mitigation measures, healthcare facilities can reduce seismic risks and ensure that, in the event of an earthquake, they can remain in operation to serve their communities.
