2017 BSSC Webinars

The National Institute of Building Sciences Building Seismic Safety Council (BSSC) will host, under the sponsorship of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), a new 2017 webinar series focused on construction materials addressed in the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP) publications.

All of the webinars are free and open to the broad disaster community and the public. Topics and presenters are listed below. Additional dates, times and information on how to access to the webinar site will be broadcast in future announcements.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in the webinar presentations are those of the authors, and do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of the BSSC, FEMA or USGS.
