SECTION 2805-2808



2805.  This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the
California Earthquake Education Act of 1984.



2806.  The Legislature hereby finds and declares as follows:
   (a) California has recently experienced and will continue to
experience in the foreseeable future damaging earthquakes of moderate
to great magnitude. Efforts have been needed to increase the
awareness of earthquake hazards through education so that future
losses of life, injuries, loss of property, and social disruption
will be minimized when those events occur.
   (b) Because of a lack of any state or local earthquake safety
education program, it has been necessary for the state to assume
leadership through the policy and guidance of the Seismic Safety
Commission to develop and test earthquake safety programs which
provide informational material to schools and the general public for
minimizing potential disruption and loss of life.
   (c) Since the pilot earthquake safety education and preparedness
programs developed under the California Earthquake Education Act of
1981 have been tested, their effectiveness analyzed, and they have
been deemed successful by the Seismic Safety Commission, the
Legislature believes that it is appropriate, as stated by the
Earthquake Education Act of 1981, that those programs be distributed
and implemented throughout the earthquake-prone areas of the state.
   (d) It is necessary that funds be appropriated to the Seismic
Safety Commission from the General Fund for the purpose of expanding
the earthquake safety program for statewide implementation over the
next three years which, when completed, will constitute for the first
time in history, a comprehensive, statewide self-supporting
earthquake safety education program.



2807.  (a) There is hereby established a project for the
implementation of a statewide program of earthquake safety education
and preparedness entitled the California Earthquake Education Project
(CALEEP). The Seismic Safety Commission may contract with the
University of California to carry out the project. The project shall
focus on identifying state and local leadership interested in using
the CALEEP materials, disseminating those materials, and utilizing
the materials.
   (b) The project shall develop a relationship with the State
Department of Education, interested teacher's education computer
centers statewide, and interested counties and school districts.



2808.  The objectives of the project are all of the following:
   (a) Developing public awareness regarding the causes of
earthquakes, the forces and effects of earthquakes, and the need for
school and community action in coping with earthquake hazards.
   (b) Promoting understanding of the impact of earthquakes on
natural features and man-made structures.
   (c) Motivating the public to establish measures prior, during, and
after earthquakes to ensure their public safety.
   (d) Disseminating, as widely as possible throughout the state, the
program and project materials.
