dc.description.abstractThe 25 papers and presentations of this volume present a variety of approaches for improving the earthquake safety and preparedness of schools and school children, especially in the Northeastern United States. This regional emphasis is established by historical surveys of Northeastern seismicity, a presentation on earthquake loss analysis in Boston and its environs, and an account of the Massena, New York earthquake of 1944. Other presentations discuss earthquake preparedness activities within the school system of New York State. The remainder of the presentations and papers treat the integration of earthquake education materials into the curriculum, nonstructural hazards in the school building, earthquake emergency drills, and the psychological effects which young children and adolescents experience during and after earthquakes.<BR>en_US
