Structural and non-structural risk mitigation in Turkey

Based on the results of a study and the low level of risk awareness among people hit by the 1999 quakes, the Bogazici University developed a non-structural mitigation (NSM) education programme, with support from the Turkish Red Crescent Society (TRCS), American Red Cross (ARC). The programme aims to promote a nationwide culture of mitigation, by providing people with basic information on earthquake risk, demonstrating how to secure potentially dangerous objects in homes, schools or workplaces, and outlining key safety actions in the event of disaster. This page includes a leaflet on the programme, a handbook on structural awareness for seismic safety, a handbook on non-structural risk mitigation and an awareness handbook. Published in 2003.
