Some Additional Information About the California Earthquake Clearinghouse:
The California Post-Earthquake Information Clearinghouse was established in 1972 to
provide State and Federal disaster response managers, affected agencies, and the
scientific community with prompt information on ground failure, structural damage, and
other consequences of a significant seismic event. The California Geological Survey serves
of Chair of the Clearinghouse and EERI serves as Vice Chair. The California Governor’s
Office of Emergency Services, USGS, and the California Seismic Safety Commission serve
as managing partners for the Clearinghouse.
Following a damaging earthquake, the California Post-Earthquake Clearinghouse is a
location where engineers, geologists, seismologists, sociologists, economists, and other
professionals who arrive in the affected area can become part of a larger, temporary
organization (the Clearinghouse) to facilitate and coordinate the gathering of information
and maximize its availability.
