The act sought to establish a National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program, under which Federal, State, and local governments and private organizations wauld jointly p&an and co- ordinate efforts to reduce earthquake hazards. The act assigned to the President the development of a plan.

Background The Earthquake Hazards Reduction Authorization Act authorizes appropriations for carrying out the Earthquake Hazards Reduction Act of   Earthquake Hazards Reduction Act of is a statute formulating a national policy to diminish the perils of earthquakes in the United States. The Act of Congress is a declaration for an earthquake prediction system, national earthquake hazards reduction program, and seismological research studies.

The United States public law authorizes.Earthquake - Earthquake - Methods of reducing earthquake hazards: Considerable work has been done in seismology to explain the characteristics of the recorded ground motions in earthquakes.

Such knowledge is needed to predict ground motions in future earthquakes so that earthquake-resistant structures can be designed. Although earthquakes cause death and destruction through such .
