Know and reduce non-structural seismic risk
Recent studies indicate that between 60 and 70% of injuries occurring in earthquakes are caused by the fall of non-structural elements.
KnowRISK is a project whose main objectives are to bring awareness to the population to seismic risk and teach how to reduce risk through non-structural protection measures.
The Move, Protect and Secure Campaign aims to allert that during the occurrence of an earthquake, falling decorative elements, partition walls, furniture or equipment can cause damage, loss of property, injury, obstruction of escape routes, or even the decrease or loss of critical functions of buildings and infrastructures that should be operational soon after an earthquake.
Small gestures like MOVE, PROTECT and SECURE make all the difference.
