Sustaining Member in the Spotlight: N/A
Topic: Resiliency Master Planning
Synopsis: Resilience is the new buzzword, and the subject of books, studies, conferences, and many initiatives. But what does it mean to be resilient? Is it about rolling with the punches or something more transformative? The speaker will discuss the need for community and agency resiliency master planning in the face of potentially disruptive natural and manmade disasters. The speaker will discuss recent work in Oregon and Washington to get ready for the expected Cascadia 9.0 Subduction Zone earthquake and tsunami, and how resiliency master planning can help all communities, including those in Hawaii and the Pacific, prepare for the future.
Speaker: Allison Pyrch, Associate, Hart Crowser, Inc.
Allison Pyrch is a geotechnical engineer whose experience includes site-specific seismic design for buildings, roads, bridges, dock and port structures, large embankments, slopes and landslides, and water infrastructure. She is active with the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Technical Committee on Lifeline Earthquake Engineering and travelled to Chile and Japan after their subduction zone earthquakes and tsunamis to study the effects on lifelines. She has been engaged with public, local and state agencies and the Oregon Resiliency Committee to promote earthquake and tsunami awareness and resilience.
