URM Summit

Utah State Senate Building in Salt Lake City

Starts: 06/25/2019 8:30 AM MST
Ends: 06/26/2019 1:30 PM MST


You are invited to attend a June 25-26, 2019 Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah, focused on finding solutions to the seismic risk posed by the large inventory of unreinforced masonry (URM) buildings along the Wasatch Front. During earthquakes, these buildings have consistently been highly prone to damage—leaving occupants and pedestrians immediately at risk to their crumbling parapets, walls, and floors and leaving entire communities exposed to the lingering effects of economic disruption. The more than 140,000 URM buildings along the Wasatch Front include homes, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, and schools. The Summit will bring together government officials, emergency managers, civic organizations, and building professionals to share perspectives and discuss solutions. The first day (June 25, 8:30am-4:45pm) will include a series of presentations by local and national experts, and the second day (June 26, 8:00am-1:30pm) will include a series of breakout discussions. The Summit will occur in the Utah State Senate Building in Salt Lake City. Attendance to the summit is free, and lunch will be provided both days. Space is limited, so we encourage those wanting to attend to register today. The deadline for registering is June 15, 2019. You can register and find additional information about the Summit here or at The Summit is being organized by FEMA, the Utah Seismic Safety Commission, the Utah Geological Survey, the University of Utah Seismograph Stations, Utah Division of Emergency Management, and the Applied Technology Council.
