Tall buildings safety strategy

Source(s):  Applied Technology Council (ATC)
City & County of San Francisco

The Tall Buildings Safety Strategy adds to San Francisco’s many innovative programs and initiatives to improve the city’s preparedness and ability to recover in the event of a major earthquake and strengthens the integrity and resilience of the city’s infrastructure, neighborhoods, and residents.

It follows and considers such leading efforts as the building occupancy resumption program (BORP), established to help building owners pre-certify private post-earthquake inspections and facilitate safe reoccupancy; the community action plan for seismic safety (CAPSS), a report to understand and mitigate earthquake risks; and the earthquake safety implementation program (ESIP), a thirty-year work plan and timeline created in 2011 for implementing CAPSS. It complements the mandatory soft story program and private school evaluation as initiatives undertaken to evaluate and retrofit our buildings ahead of the next large earthquake​.
