Western States Seismic Policy Council
The mission of the Western States Seismic Policy Council (WSSPC) is to develop seismic policies and share information to promote programs intended to reduce earthquake-related losses.
- Promote regional cooperation and the interaction of the State Emergency Management, State Geological Surveys, and State Seismic Councils and Commissions in the formation of, and advocacy for, seismic policy.
- Improve the overall awareness of earthquake hazards and methods to mitigate the associated risks; develop strategies to enhance earthquake preparedness; and support earthquake studies and earthquake preparedness activities that will reduce or eliminate deaths, injuries and property damage.
- Serve as a resource for earthquake-related materials, information, training programs and workshops, in coordination with other regional and national earthquake organizations.
