USA: Mitigating natural hazards through design and construction

Source(s):  Engineering News-Record (ENR)

"With the majority of Americans at risk for some type of natural hazard," says Oregon Congressman Earl Blumenauer, in a report by McGraw-Hill Construction, "planning for and mitigating against disasters should be a key focus for policymakers at all levels of government. If we are strategic about how and where we build, hazardous events don't have to be devastating disasters." Blumenauer is a keynote speaker at Engineering News-Record's (ENR) upcoming Mitigating Disaster through Design & Construction conference, taking place March 2-3 in Washington, D.C.
