BOMA San Francisco Members:

The overall CAPSS Workplan is now under development. Thank you for your written responses and many other comments about implementation priorities. The CAPSS team continues to welcome your comments—please call their office at (415) 554-4925 to discuss CAPSS issues or to get a copy of the Implemenation Priorities Worksheet.

Please join the CAPPS team this week at their Tuesday CAPSS seminar:
Tuesday, July 26, 10:30 AM. San Francisco’s Earthquake History, with Pat Buscovich, S.E.. Mr. Buscovich is a San Francisco structural engineer with a great interest in San Francisco's history. On Tuesday, he will lead a discussion about the history and impact of the many earthquakes and fires that have struck the Bay Area, and what we might expect in future seismic events. Please feel free to bring your own related questions to discuss. As usual, the seminar will take place in the CAPSS office, San Francisco City Hall, Room 34 and will be followed by a brown bag lunch. Everyone is invited; earthquake program staff and interns from around the Bay Area will be attending.
