Project Title: National Earthquake Technical Assistance Program (NETAP)
Client: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
Purpose: The purpose of the ATC-66 Series is to provide a mechanism for delivering direct assistance to the public to: (1) increase local earthquake knowledge and awareness; and (2) support the effective implementation of risk reduction activities from earthquakes or related hazards. NETAP provides support for course development, logistical coordination, training delivery, technical assistance, performance tracking, and development of tools necessary to support the effective implementation of the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program. Between 2013-2016, the ATC-66 Project hosted almost 400 trainings involving around 30,000 participants. These trainings occurred either as online national webinars or in-person courses in over 20 U.S. states and territories, including Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
