Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The records of the GIEC have been arranged in the following order: GIEC general records, the records of the Steering Committee, the records of the Preparedness and Response Committee, the records of the Research and Investigations Committee, the records of the Earthquake Resistance of Public Utility Systems Sub-Committee, and the records of the Sub-Committee for Recommendation 14.
The Governor's Interagency Earthquake Council (hereafter GIEC) was established in January, 1972, by Executive Order. Its function was to advise the governor on any measure of any nature that should be undertaken to reduce future earthquake losses. While the Joint Committee on Seismic Safety concentrated on developing legislative proposals, the thrust of the GIEC was toward proposing administrative changes in State and local agencies to upgrade seismic and emergency preparedness standards.
