Seismic Mitigation Program

The safety of B.C. students is vital.  A comprehensive school seismic upgrading program is underway to make schools safer in the event of an earthquake by minimizing the probability of structural collapse.  In Richmond, a total of 28 schools have been identified as requiring high priority upgrades, with the Richmond Project Team established to accelerate these projects.
