Earthquake Hazard Reduction Activities in Merida, Venezuela
MetadataShow full item record
From November 29 through December 3, 1982 Fred Cuny and Paul Thompson of INTERTECT conducted a series of workshops on reconstruction of housing after earthquakes and planning comprehensive vulnerability reduction activities at the University of the Andes in Merida, Venezuela. The meeting was hosted by the Faculty of Archi- Oecture and the Comision Especial de Asesoria Para La Prevencion de los Riesgos Sismicos del Estado Merida (C.E.A.P.R.I.S.). During the conference, the speakers were given a very thorough briefing on the activities of CEAPRIS, Defensa Civil, and local Merida search- and—rescue committees. We were also asked to critique the emergency operations plan for the city of Merida which was recently prepared under the auspices of CEAPRIS and directed by an architect from the university.
