A Framework to quantitively assesses and enhance the seismic resilience of Communities.
Earthquake has been given high priority in efforts to enhance community disaster resistance. Voluntary practices or mandatory policies along with training and preparedness are measures of emergency response which reduces the consequences of an earthquake increases the efficiency of emergency response immediately after a seismic event. All contribute to abating the seismic risk and the potential for future losses. However there is need to how to quantify resilience in the context of earthquake hazards, how to compare communities with one another in terms of their resilience, or how to determine whether individual communities are moving in the direction of becoming more resilient in the face of earthquake hazards.
In addition to focusing on the losses earthquakes produce, research must also address the ways in which specific pre- and post-event measures and strategies can prevent and contain losses. This paper presents a conceptual framework to define seismic resilience of communities and quantitative measures of resilience that can be useful for a coordinated research effort focusing on enhancing this resilience. This framework relies on the complementary measures of resilience: “Reduced failure probabilities,”
