Purpose of this website

This site introduces the concepts and uses of earthquake scenarios–as planning and exercise tools for emergency response, recovery and community planning. The site provides

  • resource information

  • examples of completed and ongoing scenarios

  • facilitated communication among scenario developers

A good scenario can be very simple. This website provides examples and information from simple to the very complex, but often, a simple, straightforward scenario that provides basic information on what might happen in an earthquake can be the most effective.
