Lessons Learned Over Time, Volume I: The Reconstruction of Pacific Garden Mall, Santa Cruz/Empowering Local Governments in Disaster Recovery Management/Roll-Up Garage Doors in Fire Stations

Lessons Learned Over Time, Volume I: The Reconstruction of Pacific Garden Mall, Santa Cruz/Empowering Local Governments in Disaster Recovery Management/Roll-Up Garage Doors in Fire Stations

This publication consists of the following three retrospective studies of past earthquakes: 1) "Earthquake as Opportunity: The Reconstruction of Pacific Garden Mall, Santa Cruz, After the Loma Prieta Earthquake of 1989," by architect Christopher Arnold, evaluates the innovative public-private planning process that resulted in the rebuilding of several city blocks in Santa Cruz, California. 2) "Empowering Local Governments in Disaster Recovery Management: Lessons from Watsonville and Oakland in Recovering from the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake and Other Recent Disasters," by urban planner Laurie A. Johnson, evaluates the recovery management of the cities of Watsonville and Oakland by studying the experiences of the responsible local government officials; 3) "Reexamining the Performance of Roll-Up Garage Doors in Fire Stations in Recent California Earthquakes," by consulting structural engineer Fred Turner, surveys fire districts throughout California on the performance of their roll-up garage doors in earthquakes since 1971, and makes recommendations based on his conclusion that significant delays in response to fires after earthquakes are possible due to malfunctioning doors. May 1999, 117 pp.

LESSONS LEARNED OVER TIME SERIES

The Lessons Learned Over Time series, part of EERI's Learning From Earthquakes program sponsored by the National Science Foundation, was established to capture and disseminate lessons that may not become apparent until some years after an earthquake, or which bear reevaluation in light of what we know today. These types of retrospective studies can help us improve disaster preparation and recovery by contributing to our understanding of earthquakes, their effects, and how we recover from them.
