Abstract

Before anyone can plan how to deal with potential disasters, the hazards that can lead to these disasters must be identified and priorities for action must be assigned. Hazards evaluation is important to every local and regional government agency in the San Francisco Bay Area. That is why the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG), under the sponsorship of the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency (DCPA), prepared the guide to hazards evaluation on which this booklet is based.
