in northern California, the Bay Area Regional Earthquake Preparedness
Project.
   (d) Through the work of the Southern California Earthquake
Preparedness Project and the Bay Area Regional Earthquake
Preparedness Project, earthquake mitigation and preparedness plans,

mitigation and prevention programs to reduce earthquake
vulnerability.
   (2) To improve regionwide preparedness and response capabilities.
   (3) To stimulate and promote innovative preparedness planning
activities by local jurisdictions.
