This 6-page laminated reference guide provides an easy-to-follow step-by-step process for identification and prioritization of seismic vulnerabilities and approaches to mitigation. It includes 11 categories of potential seismic vulnerability in one- and two-family wood frame dwellings, including anchoring and bracing. This CodeMaster explains the behavior of wood frame dwellings in seismic events and recommends the degree of priority for each area for retrofitting. It is a great educational tool with practical applications to prioritize retrofitting of dwellings for seismic resistance. This tool was developed to support FEMA's National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program curricula on Seismic Rehabilitation Training for One- and Two Family Dwellings and is intended to help implement proven mitigation techniques in the field.
