The elevated seismic risk that Bogota, Colombia lives with daily prompted the capital city’s disaster prevention and response office to produce a colorful, well-written booklet on what to do before, during and after an earthquake. Promoting the idea that the reader is the first line of defense for protecting life and property, the booklet allows the reader to evaluate and take responsibility for reducing personal vulnerability. An excellent example for other cities and municipalities wishing to produce similar material. View the booklet (Spanish only).
